Ethics Education Programme (EEP)  
Ethics Education Programme (EEP)
During the 32nd UNESCO General Conference (2003), Member States expressed the need to initiate and support teaching programs in ethics, not only in bioethics but in all scientific and professional education. On the basis of these recommendations and statements, UNESCO initiated the Ethics Education Programme in 2004.
The overall objective of UNESCO activities in this programme is to reinforce and increase the capacities of member states in the area of ethics education. This is a long-term objective. For the biennium 2004-2005 the activities in the area of ethics teaching have primarily focused on East and Central Europe. During 2006-2007 priority has been given to South-East Europe and part of the Arab region (Gulf region).
