UNESCO has launched a call for applications for African experts to become members of an expert group on the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.
This initiative is part of UNESCO’s capacity building framework program for Africa. Launched in 2012, this program is part of a long-term strategic investment to provide countries with the tools, capacities, and expertise they need to implement the Convention and to develop effective policies for their cultural and creative sectors.
A maximum of 30 candidates will be selected (15 French speaking, 15 English speaking). Women candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. Selected experts will receive a five-day intensive training on the 2005 Convention and its implementation at the national level in Africa.
The deadline for submitting application is July 20, 2012, at midnight (Paris time).
