UNESCO Chair in International Relations was established in 2009 at the Technical University of Dresden (Germany).
The purpose of the Chair shall be to promote an integrated system of research, training, information and documentation in the field of international relations. It will serve as a means of facilitating collaboration between high-level, internationally recognized researchers and teaching staff of the University and other institutions in Germany and elsewhere in Europe and North America, and in other regions of the world.
The main objectives of this Chair are to:
- expand research on the implementation of UNESCO conventions and normative instruments, in particular in the fields of cultural heritage and diversity of cultural expressions, including dispute settlement;
- analyse the existing nexus of cultural heritage/cultural diversity with peace
Ars, technology, science and society – experienced tags which accompany Ars Electronica since the emergence in 1979. Ars Electronica (AT) has sought out interlinkages and congruities, causes and effects between these realms. The ideas circulating here are innovative, radical, eccentric in the best sense of that term.
The Festival as proving ground, the Prix as competition honoring excellence, the Center as a year-‘round setting for presentation & interaction, and the Futurelab as in-house R&D facility extend their feelers throughout the realms of science and research, art and technology. Ars Electronica’s four divisions inspire one another and put futuristic visions to the test in a unique, creative feedback loop. It’s an integrated organism continuously reinventing itself.
