In June 2002, taking into consideration the recommendation of the Rio meeting, an international meeting on “ Intangible Cultural Heritage - Establishment of a Glossary” was held at UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The experts at this meeting adopted a new definition of intangible cultural heritage. This definition is contained in the preliminary-draft of the international convention on the safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage, which was to be discussed at the first intergovernmental meeting of experts on this subject (UNESCO, Paris, 23-27 September 2002).
