Report on UNESCO Convention in Asia published by IFACCA
IFACCA has published Analytical Report: Cultural Policies and the 2005 UNESCO Convention in Asia. The report, commissioned by UNESCO, aims to provide an overview of national policies and measures implemented by Parties in Asia in regard to the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.
On 4-6 March 2014 UNESCO Bangkok and IFACCA hosted the Regional Seminar ‘Diversity of Cultural Expressions in Asia: Challenges and Perspectives on the Implementation of the 2005 Convention’, in Bangkok, Thailand. The objective of the seminar was to exchange experiences on the implementation of the 2005 UNESCO Convention.
In preparation for the seminar, IFACCA, with the support of UNESCO Bangkok, drafted an analytical report based on existing quadrennial periodic reports submitted by the Parties in Asia-Pacific to the Secretariat of the 2005 UNESCO Convention as well as its own cultural policy resources .
The seminar participants discussed the draft analytical report, provided updates and introduced examples from their countries some of which are included in this final version of the report.
