Cultural Rights in Communication
The respect in communication within and across diverse cultures
The fourth Pillar focuses on cultural rights, relating to communication, that contribute to preserving and renewing cultural diversity and heritage, and are a key part of the constitution and evolution of cultural identity, personally and collectively. These include the right to use one’s mother tongue, the right to participate freely in the cultural life of one’s community, and respect in communication within and across diverse cultures.
