Composed of 24 States and elected by the General Assembly of States Parties to the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, the Intergovernmental Committee meets once every year.
During this session, chaired by Prof. Aman Wirakartakusumah (Indonesia), the Committee will examine the first periodic reports of the States Parties on the implementation of the Convention, as well as the current state of the elements inscribed into the Representative List.
