Chapter Summary

This chapter has three sections covering: (1) UNESCO practices and procedures for the elaboration of standard-setting instruments; (2) monitoring, supervision and coordination of the standard-setting instruments of UNESCO; and (3) UNESCO dispute settlement. The Rules of Procedure concerning recommendations to Member States and international conventions have provided UNESCO with a stable and efficient legal framework for the initiation, elaboration and adoption of standard-setting instruments. Monitoring, supervision and coordination mechanisms play a key role in ensuring respect for the rule of law. These mechanisms are intended to promote compliance with the law, to ensure backup for such compliance and to provide a response to any violation. The last section outlines the evolution of dispute settlement in the context of the different legal instruments adopted by UNESCO during its 60 years of history.

Keywords: coordination mechanism; dispute settlement; monitoring mechanism; standard-setting activities; supervision mechanism; UNESCO Instruments
