Paris, November 9, 2021 — Audrey Azoulay was re-elected Tuesday to the post of Director-General of UNESCO with the massive support of the Organization’s 193 Member States.

Ms. Azoulay’s re-election took place in a spirit of consensus with the overwhelming backing of UNESCO Member States, obtaining 155 votes out of a total of 169 ballots cast.

“I see this result as a sign of regained unity within our Organization. Over the last four years, we have been able to restore confidence in UNESCO, and in some respects, this has also been about restoring UNESCO’s confidence in itself. First, we regained serenity by reducing the political tensions that stood in our way and looking for common positions on divisive subjects. We were then able to develop a shared ambition, notably by reconnecting with the tradition of leading major operations in the field,” Audrey Azoulay said.

Over the past four years, UNESCO has undergone a significant modernization process to improve the efficiency of its actions.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, while hundreds of millions of children and adolescents lost their right to learn, UNESCO once again proved its ability to establish the Global Education Coalition, which made it possible to ensure educational continuity in 112 countries.
