An Important Aspect of the Implementation of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions: The International Fund for Cultural Diversity, by Ivan Bernier – April 2007

On April 16, 2007, we announced the publication by Mr. Ivan Bernier, professor emeritus at Université Laval’s Faculty of Law in Québec City, Canada, of a working paper entitled “An Important Aspect of the Implementation of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions: The International Fund for Cultural Diversity.” We are pleased to announce that it is now available in four languages ( French, English, Spanish, and Arabic).

The first regular session of the Conference of Parties to the Convention on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions is fast approaching (June 18 to 20, 2007), and we would like to once again draw your attention to two working papers on the implementation of the Convention, which are available on our website. The first document, entitled “The International Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions: Conciliation as a Dispute Resolution Method in the Cultural Sector,” by Ivan Bernier and Nathalie Latulippe, is available in French, English, Spanish, and Arabic. The other, entitled “Implementing the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions—Future Actions,” by Ivan Bernier in collaboration with Hélène Ruiz Fabri, is available in five languages ( French, English, Spanish, Arabic, and German).
