UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity
Average reader rating: 0  
by UNESCO Cross-Cultural Competence

The UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity was adopted unanimously by the General Conference at its 31st session on 2 November 2001. The Declaration was born of the wish of the Member States to define a standard-setting instrument, in the context of Globalization, for the elaboration of their national cultural policies, while respecting international rules and fundamental rights. It is the first time the International community has possessed a legal instrument which raises cultural diversity to the rank of“common heritage of humanity”.

The Declaration sets out to respond to 2 major concerns: firstly, to ensure respect for cultural identities with the participation of all peoples in a democratic framework and, secondly, to contribute to the emergence of a favourable climate for the creativity of all, thereby making culture a factor of development.
