Québec university publishing house Les Presses de l'Université Laval has just published under the direction of Professor Pierre Lemieux a work entitled: La diversité culturelle. Protection de la diversité des contenus culturels et des expressions artistiques . This book reproduces the text of lectures by several academics in Paris on January 26, 2005 at a scientific day organized by CIFDUF (Conférence internationale des facultés de droit ayant en commun l'usage du français). This scientific day had for theme the negotiation of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and was billed as a unique opportunity to reflect in depth on the theme of cultural diversity. Some texts were subsequently updated to take into account the adoption of the Convention.
