About the Cultural Activities at UNOG

The cultural policy pursued by the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) has developed considerably in recent years, thanks to the active participation of Member States.

This policy, which has as its objective multicultural dialogue and as its ultimate aim a culture of peace, is now the subject of a distinct, fully-fledged programme that has been entrusted to the Library, which reports directly to the Director-General.

The Library coordinates the policy and implements the programme, with the Chief Librarian chairing the UNOG Cultural Activities Committee.
