36th UNESCO General Conference Begins

Next Tuesday 10/25 UNESCO will convene its 36th meeting of the General Conference. Several Commissioners have generously volunteered to help represent the U.S. delegation and will attend several different pieces of the upcoming meeting.
U.S. Under Secretary of Education and Commission Member Martha Kanter will deliver the U.S. Delegation official statement to the General Conference.
The question of Palestinian membership still looms large on this upcoming meeting in terms of U.S. membership in UNESCO.
