The Diversity of Cultural Expressions
Chapter 6 considers the way in which cultural products, goods, and services form part of cultural heritage and how they can be protected and promoted through cultural policies and law. The dual economic and cultural character of this heritage is considered and some important contextual issues introduced, including cultural diversity, globalization, culture and development, and human rights. The protection of cultural expressions and their diversity is also placed within a wider economic, political, and international law context, especially with regard to trade liberalization within the World Trade Organization. UNESCO’s 2005 Convention on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions is placed within this context and is examined in detail, with attention to such questions as the rights and duties of States Parties, the role of civil society, how sustainable development is treated under the Convention, and the international cooperation and assistance framework it establishes.
