With a view to disseminate the ideas of humanism and culture of peace in the Belarusian society through teaching and learning foreign languages, in September 1999 under the initiative of the Minsk Linguistic University and with the UNESCO support in the frameworks of the UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs programme the UNESCO Chair on Peace and Tolerance through Languages and Civic Education was established.
The Agreement concerning the creation of the UNESCO Chair was signed by Ms. Baranova, the rector of the University, and Mr. Mayor, the UNESCO Director-General.
