Diversité des expressions culturelles dans l'espace francophone : témoignages et perspectives

The report Diversité des expressions culturelles dans l'espace francophone : témoignages et perspectives (The Diversity of Cultural Expression in the Francophone Sphere: Reports and Perspectives) was recently published online by the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF).

It was produced for the tenth anniversary of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, giving voice to women and men whose thoughts and accounts shine a light not only on La Francophonie's engagement with the Convention in the past but also on its future actions, with for instance the dawn of the Digital Age.

Many prominent figures contributed to the book, including:

  • French ambassador Jean Musitelli;
  • former director of UNESCO's Cultural Policies and Intercultural Dialogue Division Katérina Sténou;
  • former Québec Culture and Communications minister Louise Beaudoin;
  • Culture et Développement co-director Francisco d'Almeida;
  • Burkinabé actor Rasmané Ouedraogo.
