The ratification and implementation of the Convention continue!
The 10th anniversary of the Convention in 2015 saw a wealth of initiatives relating to the diversity of cultural expressions. It all wound up on a high note with the launch of the first UNESCO Global Report on the Monitoring of the 2005 Convention in December at the ninth session of the Intergovernmental Committee.
Two new states recently ratified the Convention: Samoa in November 2015 and Ghana in January 2016. This means that there are now 142 Parties to the Convention (141 states and 1 regional economic integration organization).
This latest issue of the Newsletter features the latest publications and best practices from the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016. It also includes activities to take place in 2016.
Interview with Solange Drouin
“In working with the Coalition for Cultural Diversity to ensure states have the power, now and in the future, to establish their own cultural policies—a principle that is integral to the UNESCO Convention—I really feel that I fought for something that gives meaning to all of the challenges we face every day as cultural organizations.”
Solange Drouin, co-president of the Canadian Coalition for Cultural Diversity
