Cultural Diversity and the Law: State Responses from Around the World

The book Cultural Diversity and the Law: State Responses from Around the World published by Éditions Yvon Blais and Bruylant includes a chapter entitled "Within The United Nations System, International Normative Action for Cultural Diversity: The Contribution of UNESCO," written by Jan Wouters and Maarten Vidal.

The essay traces the history of UNESCO's regulatory measures regarding cultural diversity, from soft law to the adoption of a restrictive Convention that legally binds the States Parties. The authors also examine the naming of the Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and shed light on the creative aspect of cultural diversity.
