Conference of Parties Resolution 4.CP 13 committed the Intergovernmental Committee for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions to begin discussing digital technologies and how they might impact the Convention. Among the contributions received by the Convention Secretariat was an International Network of Lawyers for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (RIJDEC) study by network members Véronique Guèvremont, Ivan Bernier, Mira Burri, Marie Cornu, Lilian Richieri Hanania, and Hélène Ruiz Fabri under the direction of Professor Véronique Guèvremont of Université Laval's Faculty of Law and Institute for Advanced International Studies. The report is titled The Implementation of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions in the Digital Era: Issues, Priorities, and Recommendations. Among other documents received were contributions from France, the Canadian Coalition for Cultural Diversity, and Unión Latina de Economía Política de la Información la Comunicación y la Cultura (ULEPICC).
