Chapter Summary

This chapter assesses the potential of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Convention of 2005 in filling a lacuna in public international law regarding the regulation and protection of cultural values, a view shared by various international legal scholars. It examines the issue of the fragmentation of the international law of cultural goods and services in order to assess the extent to which the Convention has been successful in achieving its own stated objectives and its operational implementation. The adoption of the Operational Guidelines as proposed by the Committee and approved by the Conference of the Parties on 15 June, 2009 was the launching moment for the operational phase in the life of the Convention and its International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD) in order to put into practices its principles and objectives.
