The UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts within the School of Education at the University of Glasgow has attracted a total of £1.56 million in funding and grants since its inception in 2016.
Funding has gone towards projects such as the Online Palestinian Arabic Course (OPAC), a cross-border collaboration to tackle unemployment and promote intercultural and multilingual exchanges through the design, development and promotion of a Palestinian Arabic language course grounded in Palestinian culture and heritage.
This case study was a part of the 2020 National Value of UNESCO to the UK Report
The 2020 National Value for UNESCO to the UK Report & Programme
The National Value Report seeks to capture the economic and wider intangible value of the UK network of UNESCO designations. It finds that the network is adding significant value to our economy and society and recommends how this value can be enhanced.
The National Value of UNESCO Designations to the United Kingdom Report shows how UNESCO is bringing sites, people and communities together, and creating and delivering value for the United Kingdom. It finds that the vibrant network of UNESCO sites in the UK, its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies are contributing in three main areas: they contribute financial value, they make a rich and creative contribution to the UK’s environment, culture and communities and contribute to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
