Cultural Diversity in International Law: The Effectiveness of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions - Routledge Research in International Law (Hardback)Lilian Richieri Hanania (editor)
- We can order this
The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) was adopted in 2005 and designed to allow States to protect and promote cultural policies. This book examines the effectiveness of the CDCE and offers ways by which its implementation may be improved to better attain its objectives.
The book provides insight in how the normative character of the CDCE may be strengthened through implementation and increasingly recurrent practice based on its provisions. Hailing from various fields of international law, political and social sciences, the book's contributors work to promote discussions on the practical and legal influence of the CDCE, and to identify opportunities and recommendations for a more effective application. Part One of the book assesses the effectiveness of the CDCE in influencing other areas of international law and the work conducted by other intergovernmental organizations through the recognition of the double nature (cultural and economic) of cultural goods and services. Part Two focuses on the practice of the CDCE beyond the recognition of the specificity of cultural goods and services in international law by addressing the CDCE's call for greater international cooperation and stronger integration of cultural concerns in development strategies at the national and regional levels.
The book will be of great use and interest to academics and practitioners in law, social and political sciences, agents of governmental and international organizations, and cultural sector stakeholders.

"This is definitely a book for international lawyers as well as academics, particularly those dealing with the interface between cultural and trade matters." - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers, 2014
"Opening with a foreword authored by Professor Helene Ruiz Fabri, this book off ers several aspects which make it an interesting read. Firstly, it results from the cooperation of experts coming from diff erent countries and diff erent professional backgrounds. While some of them are lawyers, others are experts in political or social science. Lilian Richieri Hanania, the editor of the book, has hence succeeded in pulling together an international team whose expertise reaches beyond the area of law. Th is makes the book, as whole, an interdisciplinary endeavor... To sum up, this book provides an insightful and innovative tool for anyone wishing to consider the challenges to, and potential of, a larger insertion of the CDCE into national, regional and international action relevant for preservation and promotion of cultural diversity." - Veronika Vilimkova for Czech Yearbook of Public & Private International Law (2014)
