Under Development


In conformity with article VII paragraph 2 of Unesco constitution, Lebanon was among the very first member states of Unesco to establish its own national commission for Unesco (presidential decree n°12141, June 28, 1948), thereafter known as the Lebanese National Commission for Unesco (LNCU). In turn, and since 1991, the LNCU has been acting as the National Commission for the Arab League Organization for Education, Culture and sciences (ALECSO).

A number of personalities, reputed for their contributions in the areas of concern of Unesco (Education, Science, Culture and Communication) assumed responsibilities at LNCU in their respective capacity as Presidents or Secretaries General.
