Chapter Summary

This chapter has three sections covering: (1) UNESCO and the International Copyright System; (2) human rights, human genetics and the ethics of science and technology; (3) UNESCO and the promotion of cultural exchange and cultural diversity. The first section analyzes the ongoing effect of the work done by UNESCO in creating a legal framework conducive to knowledge-creation and dissemination. The second section begins with the conceptualization of 'moral solidarity' and its embodiment as law and as subjective rights proclaimed, guaranteed and protected by the law. Moral solidarity, which involves ethical reflection, may cover intellectual solidarity in a broad sense or it may be strictly moral in a narrower sense. The last section focuses on UNESCO's standard-setting in matters of intergovernmental cultural exchange, and concludes with a general evaluation of UNESCO's normative action in support of cultural exchange and cultural diversity.

Keywords: cultural diversity; cultural exchange; human genetics; human rights; International Copyright System; UNESCO
