COP1 - Cultural Rights: A Promising Global Discourse?
3 July 2019 – 19 July 2019
Hosted by the University of Copenhagen
Migration and advances in technology have increased the level of cultural exchange and intermingling, but they have also fostered cultural clashes and incompatibilities that were previously masked by distance. Can cultural rights become a global discourse for supporting inclusive social and political development, and for fostering intercultural dialogue for the mutual understanding of cultures?
Though there is support for these rights in the International Bill of Human Rights, cultural rights have traditionally been underappreciated. This course will take a multidisciplinary approach. Among the topics focused on are intellectual property; cultural heritage; and the relationship between culture and science.
