The Council of Europe and the follow-up of the UNESCO Convention at European level

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This article looks at the Council of Europe's longstanding engagement with the issues of cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue, highlighting selected conceptual and practical key achievements for orienting and following-up on policies, such as the Compendium on cultural policy information and monitoring tool (1998) and the White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue (2008). It then analyses Council of Europe tools and features relevant for the monitoring of the UNESCO Convention at European level, and specifically the future development potential of the Compendium online system, in the framework of «CultureWatchEurope» - the Council of Europe's cultural governance observatory function. The latter may serve as an important element of a future global monitoring setting for the UNESCO Convention. The article argues that the further development of existing and proven systems should be considered in the formal monitoring and follow-up process to the Convention, so as to advance its implementation.
