More than two dozen governments are backing an initiative to expel Syria from UNESCO’s human-rights committee, a move that would mark the first time the United Nation’s culture and education agency has taken such targeted steps to remove a member.

The U.S., the U.K., Japan, Italy, Chile, Kuwait and Qatar are among 26 countries supporting the initiative after Syria was elected in November to a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization panel that judges human-rights complaints. Over half the countries signing on to the proposal are members of UNESCO’s 58-member executive board.
