World Culture Report 2000: Cultural Diversity, Conflict and Pluralism

Culture Development Gateway: Aware of the need to delve further into the multi-layered concepts of cultural diversity, conflict resolution, and pluralism, UNESCO has produced this second edition of the World Culture Report, in which experts, statisticians, and artists provide information and analysis and propose new concepts, insights, and policy recommendations. The contents of the report include: cultural justice, redistribution, and recognition; the 'social investment state' as a solution to state regulation and market dynamics; cultural diversity vs. international trade debates; poverty and culture; the relationship between cultural pluralism and citizenship in the context of increased international migration; new strategies and concepts on tangible and intangible heritage in the globalized world; information and communication technologies as vehicles for cultural empowerment; survey of changing views on diversity, tolerance, and happiness; cultural indicators and statistics on languages, religions, heritage sites, and cultural festivals. Attached to the book is a CD-ROM Guide to Cultural Resources on the Web, including museums, cultural management sites, and other Internet addresses. The report is apparently out of print, but should be available in libraries. Statistical tables illustrating cultural indicators are available online, on the indicated website.
