The UNESCO-UIA Charter on architectural education was elaborated by a group of ten experts designated jointly by the UIA and UNESCO. The text was ratified by the UIA general assembly in 1996 and updated in 2004 and 2005 by the UNESCO-UIA Validation Council for architectural education in collaboration with the Architectural Education commission. The charter lays out a series of guidelines aimed at ensuring that young architects are capable of meeting the professional, social and cultural challenges of the modern world. The charter is constantly updated and enriched by the commission and its thematic reflection groups.
