UNESCO encourages international debate about the impact of globalisation upon access to information and
the process of communication.

The Communication and Information Sector (CI) was established in 1990. Its programmes are rooted in
UNESCO's Constitution, which requires the Organization to promote the "free flow of ideas by word and image." Besides its staff at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, the CI Sector is represented in 27 UNESCO field offices.

The Communication and Information Sector is headed by Abdul Waheed Khan (India),
Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information.

The three principal strategic objectives of the Sector's programmes are:

  • Promoting the free flow of ideas and universal access to information
  • Promoting the expression of pluralism and cultural diversity in the media and world information
  • Promoting access for all to ICTs
