US to lose vote at UNESCO over three-year Palestine boycott

American influence in culture, science and education around the world is facing a high-profile blow Friday as the United States is stripped of its voting rights at the world’s cultural agency, UNESCO. And it would cost the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars to win its vote back.
The U.S. hasn’t paid its dues to the Paris-based U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in three years, in protest over the decision by world governments to make Palestine a UNESCO member in 2011. Palestine, which does not yet exist as a sovereign nation-state, was granted full membership in UNESCO two years ago
Under UNESCO rules, the U.S. has until Friday morning to resume funding, or it automatically loses its vote.
The suspension of U.S. contributions, which account for $80 million a year – 22 percent of UNESCO’s overall budget – brought the agency to the brink of a financial crisis and forced it to cut U.S.-led initiatives such as Holocaust education and tsunami research over the past two years.
It has worried many in Washington that the U.S. is on track to becoming a toothless UNESCO member with a weakened voice in international programs fighting extremism through education, and promoting gender equality and press freedoms.
