Establishment of an International University: Report of the United Nations Panel of Experts and the Director-General's Proposals in This Connexion.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This document contains the report and recommendations of the United Nations Panel of Experts on the Establishment of an International University. The panel feels that such a university would be highly beneficial to all nations. The first function of an International University would be to concern itself with problems such as those of coexistence between differing cultures, tongues, and social systems, of peaceful relations between countries and the preservation of peace and security, of economic and social change and development, of environment and proper use of resources, and of the application of the results of science and technology in the interests of development. Another important function of the university would be to assure the contact of scientists from countries at different stages of development, to permit all concerned to study the existing problems of certain disciplines and to generally enrich their knowledge. Other points, such as the organization and financing of the university, are included in the report. (HS)
