Legal Instruments

In the course of its activities, UNESCO enters into legal agreements with member states, international and regional organizations, non-governmental organizations, universities, foundations, private companies and individuals. UNESCO’s General Conference also adopts international standard-setting instruments, including, so far, twenty-nine conventions, thirty-two recommendations, and thirteen declarations. In addition to this, UNESCO can be the designated depository for instruments adopted by other intergovernmental conferences. Member states then issue and send legal instruments to UNESCO in reponse to these standard-setting instruments. The Collection consists of legal instruments transferred to the Archives and registered by Archives staff in one of the following three series: A) Instruments signed with member states; B) Instruments signed with organizations, companies and private individuals; and C) Donations, bequests and legacies.

Instruments signed with Member States

Series primarily consists of legal instruments signed between UNESCO and member states, including state agencies and corporations. Instruments include co-operation agreements, host-country agreements, funds-in-trust agreements and plans of operation. UNESCO agreements signed with local governments are also filed in this series. The series also contains agreements signed between UNESCO and international, regional or other multilateral organizations as well as all multilateral conventions and recommendations adopted by the General Conference or other intergovernmental conferences which designated UNESCO as a depository. United Nations University (UNU), University for Peace (UPEACE) and World Maritime University (WMU) agreements are filed in this series, but other agreements signed with universities, including state universities, can be found in series B. UNITWIN agreements may be filed in this series or series B. Instruments are given a reference code and registered upon receipt in the Archives and are therefore in rough chronological order.
