A unique publication
Of all the journals published by the United Nations and its specialised institutions, The UNESCO Courier has always occupied first place for the number of its readers and the range of its audience, said in 1988 the American journalist Sandy Koffler, The Courier's founder and first Editor-in-Chief.
The magazine has changed a great deal over the years, both in content and in form. But it pursues its original mission: promote UNESCO’s ideals, maintain a platform for the dialogue between cultures and provide a forum for international debate.
Available on line since March 2006, The UNESCO Courier serves readers scattered around the world: it is on PDF in the six official languages of the Organization (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish). A limited number of printed issues are also produced.
Articles express the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily represent the opinions of UNESCO.
