Antologi med 'ekkoer' af UNESCO-deklarationen om kulturel mangfoldighed fra 2001.



This anthology compiles the voices of intellectual and political leaders of our times who have given evidence of the value and strength of cultural diversity. As voices of diversity, the authors of the seventeen texts of this anthology come from all continents and embody the diversity of current cultural actors: they are in turn poets, philosophers, diplomats, anthropologists or political actors…

They are Irina Bokova, Ban Ki-moon, Kofi Annan, Claude Lévi-Strauss, Tvetan Todorov, Lourdes Arizpe, Aimé Césaire, Tanella Boni, Arjun Appadurai, Amartya Sen, Daryush Shayegan, Homi K. Bhabha, Wole Soyinka, Wangari Maathai and Aung San Suu-kyi. 

Each text echoes to one of the many matters raised by the Declaration itself: development, cultural and human rights, creativity.

English and French versions of this anthology will be distributed during the General Conference of UNESCO, on November 2nd in plenary session. It will be distributed in the six official languages of the Organization during the Alliance of Civilizations forum, held in Doha from December 11th to 13th.




The Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity will celebrate its tenth anniversary on November 2nd, 2011. UNESCO publishes an anthology entitled Echoing Voices to commemorate this founding text which allowed the acknowledgement of cultural diversity as “the common heritage of humanity” and led to the adoption of the 2005 Convention.
