Questionnaire addressed to Civil Society
This questionnaire contributes to the preparation of the first quadriennial report of the European Union on the implementation of the UNESCO Convention on the protection and promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions. The European Union must submit the report in line with its obligations as a Party to the Convention. The received contributions of civil society organisations will be annexed to the EU report.
Information about the 2005 UNESCO Convention may be found at: http://www.unesco.org/new/en/culture/themes/cultural-diversity/cultural-expressions/the-convention/
Civil society organisations (e.g. networks, foundations, professional organisations, non-governmental organisations) with a European-wide (transnational) dimension may participate in this questionnaire. Whenever an organisation is part of a bigger structure representing its interests at international level, the European section of this structure alone should participate in the questionnaire.
Organisations may be active in the area of culture, development, human rights or other policy areas falling within the scope of the Convention.
The European Commission reserves the right not to include contributions submitted by organisations that do not fulfil the criteria mentioned above.
Contributions may be submitted in all EU official languages, but, for practical reasons, you may use English, French or German. The Commission will not translate the replies to this questionnaire. Please respect the maximum number of words indicated in each section.
In case of queries, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Contributions must be received by 22 February 2012
