                   From the mid-1970s UNESCO general meetings and resolutions became

                   when UNESCO passed a resolution in 1980 adopting a “New World Information

                   Order” which was perceived by many, including professional journalists, as an

                   infringement on freedom of the press. The Reagan Administration stated that it

                   would no longer tolerate politicization of issues, wasteful spending and

                   bureaucratic bloat in this organization.  Not enough reform was perceived in the

                   following three years and the United States withdraw at the end of 1984.

                   1985.

                   enough reforms were enacted and the policy became less politicized.  A reform

                   observation group was formed to monitor UNESCO actions and the International
