Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a recommendation, concerning the status of higher-education teaching personnel, adopted by the General Conference of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Paris, held on 11 November 1997. Institutions of higher education, and more particularly universities, are communities of scholars preserving, disseminating and expressing freely their opinions on traditional knowledge and culture, and pursuing new knowledge without constriction by prescribed doctrines. Working conditions for higher-education teaching personnel should be such as will best promote effective teaching, scholarship, research and extension work, and enable higher-education teaching personnel to carry out their professional tasks. The interplay of ideas and information among higher-education teaching personnel throughout the world is vital to the healthy development of higher education, and research and should be actively promoted. Member States are under an obligation to protect higher education institutions from threats to their autonomy coming from any source.
