The Effectiveness of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions
Author: Lilian Richieri Hanania
Category: Business & Economics
The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) was adopted in 2005 and designed to allow States to protect and promote cultural policies. This book examines the effectiveness of the CDCE and offers ways by which its implementation may be improved to better attain its objectives. The book provides insight in how the normative character of the CDCE may be strengthened through implementation and increasingly recurrent practice based on its provisions. Hailing from various fields of international law, political and social sciences, the book’s contributors work to promote discussions on the practical and legal influence of the CDCE, and to identify opportunities and recommendations for a more effective application. Part One of the book assesses the effectiveness of the CDCE in influencing other areas of international law and the work conducted by other intergovernmental organizations through the recognition of the double nature (cultural and economic) of cultural goods and services. Part Two focuses on the practice of the CDCE beyond the recognition of the specificity of cultural goods and services in international law by addressing the CDCE’s call for greater international cooperation and stronger integration of cultural concerns in development strategies at the national and regional levels. The book will be of great use and interest to academics and practitioners in law, social and political sciences, agents of governmental and international organizations, and cultural sector stakeholders.

Mélanges en l'honneur de Hanns Ullrich – Contributions in honour of Hanns Ullrich
Author: Josef Drexl
Pubpsher: Armando Editore
Hanns Ullrich, this highly renowned legal scholar, has had a tremendous influence on legal research and the development of the law in the fields of both Technology and Competition. His expertise dates back to the late 1970s and early 1980s, when he served as a member of the research staff at the Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property in Munich. In 1985, he became professor of law at the “Universität der Bundeswehr”, Munich, and finally, in 2000, professor at the european University Institute, florence. He has acted as visiting professor at a number of Universities around the worldincluding, in particular, the College of Europe, Bruges. The authors of the contributions in this book feel greatly indebted to Hanns Ullrich. Much earlier than others, he recognised and explained that, in the absence of pressure from competition, intellectual property will not be able to fulfil its mission of enhancing innovation. In concentrating on the fields of interest of this eminent scholar, the contributions address a number of the most burning issues of the regulation of intellectual property, competition law and, of course, the application of competition law to IP-related cases. • • • • • • • • • • • • Hanns Ullrich – ce grand juriste universitaire – a eu un impact énorme sur les sciences juridiques et le développement du droit dans les matières de « Technologie et concurrence ». Son expertise s’est développée à partir des années 1970 et 1980 qu’il a passées comme membre du groupe de recherche à l’Institut Max Planck pour la propriété intellectuelle à Munich. En 1985, il a poursuivi sa carrière comme professeur en droit à l’ « Universität der Bundeswehr » à Munich et finalement, à partir de 2000, à l’Institut universitaire européen de Florence. Il a aussi agi – comme professeur invité – dans de nombreuses universités du monde entier et en particulier au Collège d’Europe de Brugge. Par ces mélanges, les auteurs témoignent leur reconnaissance envers Hanns Ullrich. Bien avant les autres, il a compris et expliqué que, sans les contraintes qu’impose la concurrence, la propriété intellectuelle à elle seule ne sera guère capable de répondre à sa vocation d’inciter à l’innovation. En se concentrant sur les matières sur lesquelles porte l’intérêt de cet éminent juriste, les contributions qui sont présentées dans cet ouvrage discutent sur une quantité de thèmes les plus ardents en propriété intellectuelle, droit de la concurrence et, bien sûr, ce qui concerne l’application du droit de la concurrence sur la propriété intellectuelle.
