Abstract: The main focus of this work is the conflict between instruments for cultural advocacy adopted by various countries and principles of international market rules. The cultural diversity issue is the object of the seventh UNESCO normative instrument in the field of culture. The approval process of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions in 2005, and its ratification by an expressive number of countries in a short period of time shows the urgent need for searching alternatives for the regulation of the cultural goods and services market.
