Information sharing and transparency stands at the heart of the Convention. Upon ratification, countries commit to submit every four years “periodic reports” on the policies and measures they have adopted, and challenges encountered in implementing the Convention. These reports are key instruments for civil society to engage with government officials in assessing progress made to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expressions.

 

Submit your Periodic Report

Parties to the 2005 Convention have committed themselves to systematically collect information and data, statistics and best practices on policies and measures that promote the diversity of cultural expressions. They also committed to increase transparency by sharing and exchanging this information at the international level, namely through quadrennial periodic reports.

In accordance with Article 9 of the Convention, each Party submits its periodic report on the implementation of the Convention every four years for its examination by the Conference of Parties.

Periodic reports provide qualitative and quantitative information on policies and measures Parties have taken to protect and promote the diversity of cultural expression at both the national and the international level, as well as on their impact and results. Periodic report should be elaborated through participative processes involving the concerned public authorities and civil society organizations

To complete the periodic report, please follow the “Framework for Quadrennial Periodic Report on Measures to Protect and Promote the Diversity of Cultural Expressions” annexed to the Operational Guidelines of the Convention on Article 9 “Information Sharing and Transparency”.

Periodic reports should be submitted through the online form.
