The UN Alliance of Civilizations seeks to reduce tensions across cultural divides that threaten to inflame existing political conflicts or trigger new ones. Through preventive diplomacy initiatives, it works at grassroots level, promoting education, youth, media and migration projects aimed at building trust and respect among diverse communities.

The Alliance was established in 2005, as an initiative of the Secretary-General, and under the sponsorship of the Governments of Spain and Turkey. In March 2013, the United Nations Secretary-General appointed Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, former President of the General Assembly, as High Representative.  UNAOC is supported by a Group of Friends – a community of over 120 member countries and international organizations and bodies. The UNAOC Secretariat is based in New York, and is funded by multiple donors, with operations-level support provided by UNOPS.
