Routes of Dialogue
In 1988 UNESCO launched a ten-year project entitled 'Integral Study of the Silk Roads: Roads of Dialogue'. As part of the project, several expeditions were organized to retrace, by land and by sea, some of these routes, with the participation of experts from all the countries involved. The purpose of the project was to carry out field studies of the scientific, technological and cultural exchanges which took place between the East and the West along these routes... These films both bear witness and promote the concept of multiple identities and a common heritage.

Society and Human Rights
Human rights education is a powerful tool for building inclusive societies respectful of human dignity. A real knowledge of human rights by the largest possible number of women and men is essential to make human rights a reality in every community and in the society at large. This collection of documentaries contributes to the dissemination of knowledge on human rights and shall, hopefully, constitute a valuable support in the classroom.
