This post was originally published in French.The 4th session of the seminar “New study fields in cultural heritage law” will end the 20th Festival de l’imaginaire organized by la Maison des cultures du monde. This event also highlights the 13th ICH day.
2016 is at the same time the 10th anniversary of France’s ratification of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage – the year it entered into force – and the year France chose to enact a new law on creation, architecture, and heritage, which introduces intangible cultural heritage in the definition of heritage. After this first decade implementing the Convention, what does the introduction of ICH in French law change, and which effects can be expected? These questions will be debated by researchers with expertise in intangible cultural heritage law, and officials from different European countries, that have passed legislation in favor of ICH.
