Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the various articles of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions adopted by the General Conference of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Cultural diversity, flourishing within a framework of democracy, tolerance, social justice and mutual respect between peoples and cultures, is indispensable for peace and security at the local, national and international levels. There is a need to incorporate culture as a strategic element in national and international development policies, as well as in international development cooperation, taking into account also the United Nations Millennium Declaration (2000) with its special emphasis on poverty eradication.
