2005 Convention



The speed at which the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions was adopted and entered into force is considered an extraordinary achievement.  It signals the urgency and political commitment for action from governments around the world.

Today, there are 110 Parties to the Convention, work on a complete set of operational guidelines on the Convention is nearing completion, and the International Fund for Cultural Diversity has been launched.
