Programa

16:30 – 16:40
Introduction to cultural rights.
Arantzazu Acha. Director of UNESCO Etxea - UNESCO Basque Country Centre.

16:40 – 17:00
Cultural rights and women.
Mylne Bidault. Human Rights officer at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), United Nations.

We often consider culture as an impediment to women's rights, a tendency which diverts attention from the specific actors, institutions, rules and regulations that keep women subordinated within patriarchal systems and structures. Addressing cultural rights of women, on an equal basis with men, allows a shift in perspective: cultural rights are empowering rights enabling women to take part in society. Women have the right to access, participate in, and contribute to all aspects of cultural life, including the right to actively engage in identifying and interpreting cultural heritage, and deciding which cultural traditions, values or practices are to be kept intact, modified or discarded altogether.

17:00 – 17:20
Cultural rights and young people.
Gemma Carb. Director of the UNESCO Chair in Cultural Policies and Cooperation. University of Girona.

One of the specifics of the contemporary social, political and economic paradigm that we call the knowledge society is the central role of the relationship between citizenship education and cultural rights. Cultural and artistic expressions are strategic to find new ways to promote conviviality that agree with the universal values of democracy and respect for human rights and that is one of the main goals of educational systems all over the world.

17:20 – 17:40
Cultural rights and indigenous people.
Beatriz Barreiro. Professor of Public International Law and International Relations at the Rey Juan Carlos University.

International Indigenous Peoples’ rights standards, being part of International Human Rights Law, clearly legitimize the claims of Indigenous Peoples. In my intervention, I will explain why the new UN developments dealing with Cultural Rights - namely the ESCR Committee’s GC on the right to take part on cultural life as well as the Independent Expert on Cultural Rights’ documents - offer important advantages over the more traditional UN Indigenous Peoples Rights instruments. For doing that, I will focus on the specific issue of World Heritage Sites and Indigenous Rights.
