Every four years countries that have ratified the UNESCO 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions commit to submit a report on the ways the international agreement has been implemented at the country-level.
These testimonies by representatives of civil society and the government recount the impact of the elaboration of periodic reports. The process of periodic reporting provides an opportunity for countries to map the state of affairs of the cultural sector while defining new policy priorities for the coming years. It also enables greater policy dialogue between civil society and the government as well as enhancing cooperation between ministries and facilitating an open dialogue on sensitive issues such as freedom of expression and artistic freedom.
