PRESENTATION

Cultural rights are a field still relatively unknown for which few research and information are available. Yet, cultural rights are cross-cutting issues and touches on fundamental questions for our societies. Through cultural rights, it is not only the issue of cultural diversity and participation to cultural life that is addressed, but also access to scientific progress and education, the protection of intellectual property and academic liberty.


This new publication of CETIM is part of the human rights series launched in 2005 with the objective of contributing to the information and training of all those engaged in the struggle for the respect and advancement of those rights. It is part of CETIM's commitment, since its foundation in 1970, in favor of human rights, in particular econnomic, social and cultural rights (ESCR) and the right to development.
