The UNESCO Courier

Of all the journals published by the United Nations and its specialised institutions, the UNESCO Courier has always occupied first place for the number of its readers and the range of its audience, said the American journalist Sandy Koffler, the Courier’s founder and first editor-in-chief, in 1988. The magazine has changed a great deal over the years, both in content and in form. But it pursues its original mission: promote UNESCO’s ideals, maintain a platform for the dialogue between cultures and provide a forum for international debate. Available online since March 2006, the UNESCO Courier serves readers around the world in the six official languages of the Organization (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish), and also in Esperanto, Korean and Portuguese. A limited number of issues are also produced in print.

Ideas: Racism does not need racists

The debate on what we call a “migration crisis” has a racial component. It is a pattern which consistently repeats itself in laws, narratives and practices, like it has done over centuries, according to Uruguayan-American writer Jorge Majfud. Taking us on an instructive detour through history, he points out the total absence – in this same heated debate – of any mention of half a million European immigrants who live illegally in the United States and another million Americans living illegally in Mexico.
