German Commission for UNESCO

The German Commission for UNESCO is a National Commission (DUK) established under Article VII of the UNESCO Constitution, and is thus the link between Germany and UNESCO. It acts as an intermediary of foreign cultural and educational policy, and is supported by the Foreign Office. The DUK was founded on the 12th May 1950, even before Germany had been admitted to UNESCO (11th July 1951).

Its members – which number around 100 – reflect the broad spectrum of institutions and associations active in Germany in UNESCO’s areas of competence: education, science, culture and communication.

It advises the Federal Government, Parliament and all other public bodies on UNESCO issues, as well as on selected issues in the competence of the Council of Europe.

It coordinates the contribution of German experts and civil society to the drafting of UNESCO’s programmes and norms.

The DUK is responsible for providing information and for public awareness activities in German on all of UNESCO’s areas of work.
