UNESCO is very pleased to announce that ‘The Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions’, adopted by UNESCO’s General Conference in October 2005, will enter into force on 18 March 2007.The Convention seeks to reaffirm the links between culture, development and dialogue, and to create an innovative platform for international cultural cooperation. To this end, it
reaffirms the sovereign rights of States to elaborate cultural policies with a view both “to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expressions” and “to create the conditions for cultures to flourish and to freely interact in a mutually beneficial manner” (Article 1). In addition, the Convention consecrates the role of culture as an actor in development (Article 13), mobilizes civil society to achieve its goals (article 11), and places international solidarity at the heart of its mechanism (articles 12 to 19), by including the creation of an international fund for cultural diversity (article 18). It also highlights “the importance of intellectual property rights in sustaining those involved in cultural creativity” and reaffirms
that “freedom of thought, expression and information, as well as diversity of the media, enable cultural expressions to flourish within societies.”
