Cooperation and collaboration amongst countries is vital to international diplomacy. UNESCO creates a platform where countries can come together, express themselves freely, celebrate their heritage, and ensure equal access to education. Understandably, the United States was an active member of this organization from the beginning. As a leader in the global economy during the 1940s, they helped lay the groundwork for UNESCO’s goals and became an extremely large contributor to the organization as a whole. However, what happened when they decided to withdraw their support in 1984? What specific events led them to turn their backs on an organization that they helped to build? The answer lies within a political structure that fears radicalization in the struggle for power.

UNESCO was established as a “meeting of diverse minds,” however when it was founded, the countries had an extremely westernized point of view. By 1984, UNESCO had grown from 30 countries to 153 and the new members wanted their voices to be heard. This only became a problem for the United States with the development of new communication strategies for developing countries, specifically those involving the press. Many countries feared for the safety of their journalists, and therefore made plans to limit their media outlets. Although this was a valid concern in some cases, many member states were using this as an opportunity to hide their government activities, therefore eliminating any form of global transparency. The United States were averse to these limitations and in fact threatened to withdraw their support if they were accepted. The aversion came from a fear that if there was not some form of transparency between countries, the United States and their political power would be threatened.

Another condition that led to the withdrawal of the United States was the view that UNESCO was overstepping boundaries in politics. Understandably as the overall make-up of the organization shifted, so did its political agenda. UNESCO’s core values from the beginning included a commitment to the economic, social, and cultural wellbeing of the world. However, this value system made it susceptible to radicalization and the United States felt that the organization was moving in the direction of a completely radicalized system. Their objection started with UNESCO’s involvement in the Israeli occupation of Jerusalem. The organization condemned Israel for destroying Jerusalem’s cultural heritage site and the US felt as if they should not be involved in such a political conflict. Although protecting heritage sites is an important part of their mission, they thought such a conflict should be handled by the United Nations, themselves.

The threat of the loss of global transparency with the direction of radical politicization within the organization are vital pieces to the larger puzzle to explain the United States’ withdrawal from UNESCO. They continued their hiatus for many years, not renewing their membership from 1984-2003. However, the most important point to remember is that a decision to disengage from these global organizations is always political. It’s a question of control and the effort to maintain political power that leads certain countries to make these decisions.
