9 June 2017In this Yearbook the UNITWIN Network offers an opportunity to learn about and learn from a wide variety of Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) projects. It also reflects the differing viewpoints of what constitutes media and information literacy and how to best foster intercultural dialogue. The UNITWIN Cooperation Programme on Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) is based on an initiative from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC).
This network was created in line with UNESCO’s mission and objectives, as well as the mandate of UNAOC, to serve as a catalyst and facilitator helping to give impetus to innovative projects aimed at reducing polarization among nations and cultures through mutual partnerships.
This UNITWIN network is composed of eight universities from different geographical areas, including: Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain; Cairo University, Egypt; the University of West Indies, Jamaica; the University of São Paulo, Brazil; Temple University, USA; Tsinghua University, China;
Queensland University of Technology, Australia; Sidi Mohamed Bin Abdellah University, Morocco. The agreement was signed in Fez, Morocco in May 2011, in the presence of presidents from the above member universities. The MILID Network also includes associate members and will be expanded gradually.
