Commissioned by UNESCO from the Henry Dunant Institute, this volume of essays lays the foundation for an international programme for the teaching of international humanitarian law within the framework of UNESCO's plan for the development of the teaching of human rights. Parts I and II deal with the development of humanitarian ideas and law within different schools of thought and cultural traditions; Part III with the law of armed conflict and Part IV with the application of international humanitarian law.
It is hoped that the publication of this volume, which, in its original French edition, coincided with the 40th Anniversary of UNESCO and the International Year of Peace proclaimed in 1986 by the UN General Assembly, will reinforce the determination of the international community to achieve the aim of the founders of UNESCO, namely to construct the defences of peace in the minds of men.

Standard-setting represents one of the main constitutional functions of UNESCO and an important tool for realizing the goals for which the Organization was created. In addition to conventions and recommendations, the declarations adopted by the General Conference promulgate principles and norms intended to inspire the action of Member States in specific fields of activity.
This second of a two-volume work on Standard-Setting in UNESCO collects the complete texts of all UNESCO instruments. Part I of Conventions, Recommendations, Declarations and Charters adopted by UNESCO (1948-2006) contains conventions and agreements adopted by the General Conference and by intergovernmental conferences convened by UNESCO itself or jointly by UNESCO and other international organizations. Part II includes the recommendations issued by the General Conference, while Part III features all UNESCO declarations.
