Chapter Summary

Cultural rights include both rights of individuals and rights of groups. In the case of minorities and indigenous peoples, most cultural rights of the persons belonging to these communities are better or solely implemented within a group context, as they constitute expressions of a way of life of a culturally distinct group. Women suffer from certain cultural practices and they are also hampered in the exercise of certain of their cultural rights. Human rights treaty bodies and extra-conventional mechanisms of the UN Human Rights Council should pay more attention to the right to participate in cultural life when examining the situation of human rights around the world. Given UNESCO’s limited field presence and participation in the preparation of UN development programmes, its influence has not been adequately reflected in UN operations.
