The Secretariat for Cultural Diversity of Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec recently added a website tab for a section that presents two reports directed by Ms. Véronique Guèvremont. This section is in addition to one that features publications by Mr. Ivan Bernier, associate professor in the Faculty of Law at Université Laval. Ms. Guèvremont is also a professor at Université Laval in the Faculty of Law and at Institut québécois des hautes études internationales.
The first report by Ms. Guèvremont is entitled "Preliminary reflection on the implementation of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions in the digital era." The second is a collective publication by the International Network of Lawyers for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (Réseau international des juristes pour la diversité des expressions culturelles- RIJDEC) of which Ms. Guèvremont is a cofounder. This second document was presented at the Intergovernmental Committee of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions in December 2013 and also addresses the question of implementing the 2005 Convention in the digital era.
