Abstract

The 2005 Convention explicitly requires member states to involve civil society in its implementation. Indeed, the ConventionConvention “is the first international instrument of its kind to recognize the very specific nature of cultural goods and services, having both an economic and a cultural dimension” (UNESCO, 2013a; see also Merkel, 2012). A main objective of the ConventionConvention is to combine economic approaches to culture and creativity with a perspective that values culture in its own right, and to reaffirm the responsibilities of member states to develop appropriate cultural policies.
