The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) 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, at the initiative of the Governments of Spain and Turkey, under the auspices of the United Nations. On 7 January 2019, H.E. Miguel Ángel Moratinos was appointed by the United Nations Secretary General to succeed Nassir Abdulaziz Al Nasser, former President of the General Assembly, and Jorge Sampaio, former President of Portugal, as High Representative of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations. UNAOC is supported by a Group of Friends – a community of over 130 member countries and international organizations and bodies. The UNAOC Secretariat, based in New York, NY, is funded by multiple donors, with operations level support provided by UNOPS.
