The UNESCO Convention on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions: A Tale of Fragmentation in International Law

Edited by Toshiyuku Kono and Steven Van Uytsel, Intersentia, International Law, Vol. 9, 2012, 478 pp., ISBN 978-9-40000-003-2

The book The UNESCO Convention on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions: A Tale of Fragmentation in International Law, published by Intersentia, fills a gap in the literature on how the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions positions itself within the broader field of public international law. Several studies have been conducted on the relationship of the Convention with the trade regime. However, in addition to trade matters, the Convention drafting process also brought numerous other issues to the forefront, such as heritage law, human rights law, and development law. This book investigates to what extent the Convention has impacted these various fields of law and seeks to clarify the Convention's role in the fragmentation of public international law.

The book is edited by Toshiyuku Kono, Distinguished Professor of Law at Kyushu University and Steven Van Uytsel, Associate Professor of Law at Kyushu University.
