Description and Mandate of the Chair

The UNESCO Chair in Public Communication for Social Justice, Human Rights and Territorial Development proposes a space for teaching, research and transfer of knowledge and experiences in public and private spheres, civil society, universities and other educational organizations, with local, regional and international impact.

Based on five programs: teaching, research, University extension, international cooperation and communication literacy, the Chair integrates training activities, data analysis and inter-institutional and international cooperation in the field of public communication. It incorporates state and non-state modalities, from an inclusive and comprehensive perspective, prioritizing the human rights of historically vulnerable sectors, thus hoping to contribute to territorial development with social justice.

Activities are planned according to the needs of the participating institutions, such as specific workshops, transfer of knowledge and technology, diffusion of publications, field work and consulting.
