Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the articles of the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity adopted by the General Conference of UNESCO. Culture takes diverse forms across time and space. This diversity is embodied in the uniqueness and plurality of the identities of the groups and societies making up humankind. As a source of exchange, innovation and creativity, cultural diversity is as necessary for humankind as biodiversity is for nature. In this sense, it is the common heritage of humanity and should be recognized and affirmed for the benefit of present and future generations. The development of international rules is one of the main functions of UNESCO. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: cultural diversity; international rules; UNESCO
