"The Foundation of the football club at FC Barcelona has explicit objectives to support the links between sport and conflict resolution. This was marked by FC Barcelona’s adhesion to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and the donation of 0.7% of the club’s ordinary income to the Foundation to support its programmes and projects. This has led to the strengthening of our early alliances with Unicef, UNESCO and UNHCR. FC Barcelona was awarded a position as a member of the ECOSOC (Economic and Social Council of the United Nations) and has recently endowed a UNESCO Chair in Sport and Peacebuilding in partnership with the Open University of Catalunya to support and develop sport as a tool for social coexistence and the resolution of conflicts. The initiative has seen the launching of an Masters Degree, in Spanish and in English, in Sport, Social Cohesion and Conflict Resolution." LINK
