Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book, first recalls the questions that were invited to address in the Programme of the Colloquium from which this book originated. It looks at the phenomenon of UNESCO standard-setting from or through two perspectives or paradigms. Firstly, by situating it in the evolution of international law in general, from the 'international law of coexistence' toward the 'international law of cooperation', to shed new light on some of the specificities and shortcomings of UNESCO standard-setting pointed out in our debates. Secondly, by assessing it as part of the interaction between law and society, between social needs and values, on the one hand, and legal norms on the other.

Keywords: international law; legal norms; social needs; UNESCO
