Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the various articles of the declaration of principles on tolerance adopted by the General Conference of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Paris, held on 16 November 1995. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms that 'everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion ', 'of opinion and expression', and that education 'should promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups'. The responsibilities of Member States are to develop and encourage respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction as to race, gender, language, national origin, religion or disability, and to combat intolerance.
