On the 12th of March 1999 a cooperation agreement has been signed between the Municipality of Assisi and the Italian Society of International Organization – Società Italiana per l’Organizzazione Internazionale (SIOI)- aiming at the creation of the Office for the Support to the United Nations. The Office organises conventions and events on peace and multiculturalism. In 2000, Assisi received another prestigious recognition from UN: the “UN Depositary Library” where all the documents pertaining to the important world institution are kept. Among the recurring projects of the Office the following are worth mentioning: the “Course for Teachers Teaching Human Rights” organized with SIOI and targeted to headmasters and teachers from all Italian schools; The Training Seminars “Meetings in Assisi” (“Incontri di Assisi”), created jointly by University of Foreigners of Perugia and SIOI, focusing on current topics of international law, peace and human rights.
