The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions: A Commentary

Edited by Sabine von Schorlemer and Peter Tobias Stoll, Springer, 2012, 778 pp., ISBN 978-3-642-25 994-4

In The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions: A Commentary, thirty diplomats, practitioners, and academics explain and assess the Convention in a commentary style. Article by article, the evolution, concepts, content, and implications of the Convention are analyzed in depth and are complemented by valuable recommendations for implementation. The book draws on the first-hand insights of negotiators and the experience of practitioners in implementation, including international cooperation, and combines this with a good deal of critical academic reflection.

This publication is a valuable guide for those who deal with the Convention and its implementation in governments, diplomacy, international organizations, cultural institutions, and non-governmental organizations and will also serve as an important resource for academic work in such fields as international law and international relations.

Culturelink Team member Nina Obuljen is the author of an important article Article 4. Definitions (pp. 133 163).
