Media and information literacy (MIL) empowers citizens with skills to become the centre of the knowledge society and the democratic, development and good governance processes. This first International University Network on Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (UNESCO/UNAOC-MILID) was launched through partnership between UNESCO and UNAOC. It is a part of our deep commitment to promote media and information literate societies and mutual understanding among cultures on a global scale. The Network will give impetus to research that can inform policies on MIL and Intercultural Dialogue.

To this end, the focus will be on maximizing the contributions of its members at both policy and operational levels. The UNESCO/UNAOC-MILID will seek to ensure that the collective knowledge and expertise are not only shared and exchanged, but are also reflected in the elaboration of strategic projects at national, regional and international levels.
