Tribute to Ivan Bernier

Université Laval's UNESCO Chair on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions has a new "Hommage à Ivan Bernier" section on its website. Bernier, a professor emeritus in Université Laval's law faculty, is a key figure in the history of the 2005 Convention. The section assembles Bernier's public statements and other key writings published between 1987 and 2017. Also in the section are statements and reports by those who worked with him on this issue, such as Dave Atkinson, former governmental coordinator for cultural diversity and head of the Cultural Diversity Secretariat at Ministère de la Culture et des Communications, and Danielle Cliche, secretary of the 2005 Convention.
