As UIE approaches its 50th anniversary it can look both back over the important ground covered since its foundation and forward to new challenges.

Despite the difficulties experienced by UIE from the early part of 2000, the Institute has not only been able to continue working at full speed, carrying out an extensive research programme, organising seminars and maintaining its publication and documentation services, but it has also embarked on a new programming cycle, involving a fundamental restructuring of its activities. This restructuring was completed successfully in 2000 and is...

2002 was a very special year for UIE. On 14 June, UIE celebrated its 50th anniversary in a spirit of renewed self-confidence and optimism. Although the Institute is now facing a tighter budget than in previous years, the threat of insolvency and uncertainty is now definitely averted. This is due in large measure to the support of many partners all over the world. UIE wishes to thank especially the German government and the government and Parliament of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg for their continuing support and hospitality to the Institute. Equally, we are grateful to the...

In 2003, the UNESCO Institute for Education moved resolutely forward towards changing its status from that of a German foundation to becoming a full-fledged international institute. This change of status is not simply a legal matter. It implies much more: a transformation of identity, of spirit and of responsibility. Although a reduction of financial resources continues to weigh heavily on the Institute, UIE has proved that it will be able to continue its work under its new conditions, that it can win new sources of funding and that it is capable of thriving in a competitive surrounding...

In 2003, the Executive Board of UNESCO decided that the status and statutes of the UNESCO Institute for Education should be changed in order to make it a full-fledged international institute. Although the Host-country Agreement between UNESCO and the German Government – which is the decisive step towards the new international status of UIE – has not yet been concluded, the Institute has made in the past year great efforts to adapt to the new situation. A considerable attempt was made by UNESCO to integrate more organically UIE and other Education Institutes and Centres into the Education...
