Our Notable Alumni


What is a UNESCO Chair ? The UNESCO chair, in addition to the Institute of Education for Peace, arranges nationwide and global conferences, as well as cultural occasions (kids' painting exhibits, theater performances, performances, etc.). In many circumstances, the Networks and Chairs serve as think tanks and as bridge contractors between academia, civil society, local neighborhoods, research study, and policy-making.
