European Coalitions call for commitment to rapid implementation of the UNESCO Convention

The French Coalition for Cultural Diversity has posted on its website a series of resolutions passed on October 23 by the European Coalitions meeting in Paris. The resolutions, according to the French Coalition, “are a reminder of the need for concrete action for rapid implementation of the UNESCO Convention to ensure the promotion and defense of culture, both nationally and internationally. They also inform States Parties to the UNESCO Convention, as well as countries that have yet to ratify the Convention, of developments in international trade negotiations that could harm culture.”

The resolutions are available in full from the French Coalition for Cultural Diversity website.
