On October 20, 2005, at the General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions was approved[1]. This instrument recognized cultural diversity as the common heritage of humanity, which must be valued and preserved for the benefit of people and nations. Also, raised the need for States to integrate the cultural dimension into public policies and to achieve sustainable development. To do this, cultural policies and measures should promote the full participation and commitment of all members of society contributing to the diversity of cultural expressions, particularly persons belonging to minority groups, women, youth and indigenous peoples.Four years after the drafting of the First Report on the measures taken by the Chilean State to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expressions on their territory and at international level, this Second Report shows progress in relation to the process of gathering information as well as the inclusion of key stakeholders, belonging to public institutions and civil society. Therefore, the information gathered for the development of this new report, has been more complete and rich.Among the relevant achievements for the 2011-2015 period, it is important to underline the progress that the Chilean State has had in the generation of spaces for citizen participation, both in the design of cultural policies processes as in the creation of the country's future cultural Institutionality.Regarding transversal issues, the Chilean State wants to emphasize the recognition of the indigenous peoples as actors in the promotion and protection of the cultural diversity, starting at the Prior Consultation to the indigenous peoples. This Consultation was made within the elaboration and later presentation of the substitutive indication to the bill that creates the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage and it resulted in the decision to establish the Department of Indigenous Peoples in the current structure of the National Council of Culture and Arts (CNCA).The main challenges that the Chilean State has to highlight regarding the 2005 Convention, are focused towards a major incorporation of the genre perspective in the reflection and design for the cultural public actions, as in the empowerment of the territories as the cultural diversity fundamental spaces.Regarding future perspectives, the Chilean State wishes to emphasize the importance of the institutional transition processes that relate with the creation of the Ministry of Women and Genre Equality (law approved in 2015) and the bills that create the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples, the National Council of the Peoples and the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage, all of them currently under legislative process at the National Congress. This processes take account the preeminence that those issues have acquired in the Chilean State and they should encourage a more coordinated, coherent public action, and with a major impact.[1] Henceforth, this Report will refer to the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expression as “the 2005 Convention”.

With the recovery of the democracy in the country, in 1990, starts a process in which the civil society and diverse chilean government organisms have dialogued over the need to create a public cultural Institutionality of the highest level, capable of response to the current and future challenges. The above, understanding that: "It is an essential part of building a truly democratic society, the public policy development that encourages, promotes, respects and recognizes the diversity of stories, its tangible and intangible manifestations, the various processes of memory, language and diversity of cultural heritage that has shaped our country; and also that those policies promote multiculturalism and unity in diversity, and the real and reciprocal dialogue between the state and society, respectful of their stories, knowledge, trades and cultural expressions”[1].Nowadays, Chile is living a key moment of structural transformation that will allow address the cultural policy with a proper Institutionality. It is that so, during the reporting period, the Chilean Government has committed to enter a bill in the National Congress that creates the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage, which is currently in phase process in Congress. Such legislative measures materialized following an extensive public participation process - led by the current cultural institutions, the CNCA - and involved its corporate organizations and the cultural community as a whole.Parallel to this institutional transformation, the country is also in a renewal period of its main strategic instruments in cultural policy matter: its National Cultural Policy, its 15 regional cultural policies, its sectorial policies and the respective policies of its artistic areas. During the course of this year, corresponds an evaluation process of current policies and the design of new instruments for the 2017-2022 term.In the case of sectorial guidelines, in 2015 the Second National Policy of the Book and Lecture was designed and build, wich highlighted for its citizen participation high level and to take into account the principles and objectives of the 2005 Convention.At the same time, policies promoting films, audiovisual, and chilean music are finishing their participatory processes to collect the positions of the different players in the sector, as well as a diagnosis for the construction of a new structure which orient the management of each sector.By the other hand, since 2011, 4 new artistic areas have been incorporated into the organic structure of the CNCA (Circus arts, architecture, new media and design), and each of their respective policies will be elaborated from this very year. These instruments will settle new processes of citizen participation and territorial approach, being a strategic opportunity to incorporate the principles and objectives of the 2005 Convention.In summary, the new chilean cultural Institutionality must promote and contribute to cultural public governance based in the respect for the human rights, the cultural diversity, the citizen participation, the recognition and respect for the gender diversity and sexual identity, the intercultural dialogue and the practice of the criticism and the creative thought.[1] Message from the Executive that accompanies the entrance to the National Congress of legislative initiative establishing the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage (December 17, 2015), available at

    Activities planned for next 4 years to implement the Convention:

    Describe main results achieved in implementing the Convention: 

    Between 2011 and 2015, the State of Chile has progressed markedly in the implementation of the 2005 Convention, particularly in the progressive installation of a new approach that puts the citizen at the center of public action. Thus, in the framework of institutional transition processes, the dialogue was opened with civil society and indigenous peoples aimed at the creation of the "Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage".

    Challenges encountered or foreseen to implement the Convention : 

    The biggest challenge in this area is the consolidation of citizenship approach centered in its diversity as a central actor in public action and as a bearer of cultures and identities. More specifically, it is to consolidate the processes of citizen participation as a central element in public decision-making, in particular as regards the design and implementation of policies, plans and programs in the field of culture.One of the most important commitments of the Chilean State in this process of citizen inclusion, in their diversity, as an active player in public policy is to strengthen the territorial approach. Indeed, the different institutions consulted for the making of this report point out to the need to develop an action it considers the territories in their great diversity, and to include them as actors in public decision-making. Currently, instruments for public action leave little room for the construction of policies that consider in all its complexity cultural diversity of the territories.To advance in this regard, the new cultural Institutionality should empower the local levels and install processes defining policies and instruments that consider the territories as central players in the process. In other words, it comes to providing the territories with the necessary tools to play its role as a privileged place of recognition, respect and promotion of cultural diversity. 

    Solutions found or envisaged to overcome those challenges: 

    Among the next steps that the Chilean State should give in the implementation of the 2005 Convention, is the concretization of the new cultural Institutionality, which will provide public policies for cultural promotion of greater administrative rank, by equating it to other areas of social development such as Education or Environment. In this regard, the institutional transition should reaffirm the approach of cultural goods and services as carriers of identity, value and meaning.This strengthening of cultural Institutionality in the country will enable the design and implementation of more ambitious cultural public policies, starting from the principles such as the articulation, coordination, coherence and relevance.

    Steps planned for the next 4 years: 

    Another goal to achieve in the coming years is the creation, from the present Report process, of a permanent bureau for monitoring the Convention of 2005. This bureau, will be housed in the CNCA, under the joint coordination of the International Affairs Unit and the Department of Studies, and will enable to raise in a permanent way, topics that reflect the public action of the Chilean State regarding the 2005 Convention implementation.In the field of integration of a gender perspective, the main achievement of CNCA has been the creation in 2015 of a Section of Participation, Gender and Inclusion. However, this section still recent should consolidate the inclusion of gender perspective in the design of the instruments of public action, starting with the production of cultural statistics that take into account gender inequalities in terms of cultural participation and human development. Because of this it maintains as an important challenge for cultural Institutionality (current and future), the systematic integration of the gender perspective in its policies, plans, programs and projects.Finally, the Chilean State wants to highlight that these evoked challenges, are registered in the new Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, which seeks to incorporate a more robust vision of development in its various aspects102. On the one hand, the gender equality perspective103 and the promotion of a participatory decision-making as a condition for peace, justice and institutional strength104, are two key objectives of the new international agenda that will aim to strengthen.On the other hand, the Chilean State is aware that culture is part of this comprehensive approach to development. This is particularly mentioned in the goal that promotes the acquisition of tools for a world citizenship, for the valuing of cultural diversity and the contribution of the culture for sustainable development and in the goal that seeks to protect and cherish the world's natural and cultural heritage.
