Following its ten years project entitled The integral study of the Silk Roads, Roads of Dialogue and following its consultation with member states, UNESCO has worked at establishing an online platform on the Silk Road in order to promote the outcomes of that former project.

The UNESCO Silk Road Platform for Dialogue, Diversity and Development has been recently released. It is to be UNESCO’s unique platform for global exchange about cultural development, and the preservation as well as the promotion of cultural heritage along the Silk Road. It aims at becoming an online hub for Silk Road studies: the new platform would be a unique source of original information, scholarship and news about the Silk Road. SOAS is one of the leading academic institutions in this project.
