    Organization of the work of the 32nd session (32 C/2)

    The document 32 C/2 will also be available during the summer, in 2003.

    The General Conference carries out its work in several organs - plenary, commissions and various commitees and working groups - which sometimes meet simultaneously. The agendas of the commissions are organized around one of the main themes of UNESCO's programme.


    Other events of the session alongside the formal proceedings of the General Conference, several meetings are to be held.
