This dissertation intends to analyze the guiding principles and normative directives related to racism treatment in Education by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization UNESCO. Through a theoretical qualitative approach, the research verifies how the organization deals with uses and meanings of racial thematic in Education. In this way, the investigation aims to reflect critically upon different uses and meanings about the debate on racial relations, and to comprehend the education construction as an anti-racist policy performed by UNESCO. Therefore, UNESCO s official documents were analyzed using a historical perspective as a way to understand how the development of the debates produces normative instruments to the management of the racial issue. Since its beginning, UNESCO has published several documents and materials as an attempt to join countries and make them find out the universal peace. Moreover, its position about the theme became a key point to deal with the racial matter, seen as a problem to have peace. So, the education was a chosen option by it to win this obstacle. For this reason, it can be said that UNESCO proposes education as an anti-racist policy. The research focuses on a contemporary debate about racial relations, especially in aspects of racialized people production as an individual or group.
