The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions - At Critical Crossroads?On 1 December 2010, The Flemish Research Centre on International Policy and the Centre for Studies on Media, Information and Telecommunication organized a study day in Brussels, with support from the Flemish UNESCO Commission, regarding the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.
The aim of the day was to reflect upon developments that have taken place since the Convention was adopted, the Convention’s 5 year anniversary on 20 October 2010, and the way forward of the Convention.
The study day brought together academics, policy makers and media practitioners to discuss a number of topics related to this past, present and future of the Cultural Diversity Convention. A website with the presentations and with additional information can be found by clicking the link below.
