Chapter Summary

This section explains an examination of the impact of UNESCO standard-setting instruments on international law and on methods of institution building and rule-making at the international level. It covers the following topics: (1) the impact of legal instruments adopted by UNESCO on general international law; (2) an assessment of UNESCO's role in the development and application of international law; and (3) the development of new intergovernmental institutions through simplified agreements. Human dignity and the promotion of solidarity among peoples in furtherance of humanity are covered in the section. The two intergovernmental institutions that have been created by UNESCO by way of simplified procedure are: the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM); and the International Centre for Synchrotron Light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East (SESAME).

Keywords: human dignity; ICCROM; intergovernmental institutions; international law; SESAME; UNESCO
