The Colloquium was attended by over 800 people from 65 ACP and EU countries,
including high-level policy makers, artists and professionals, senior
officials, MEPs and representatives of European civil society and the media.
The initial reactions of participants indicated that, at the professional
level, many of the participants have initiated contacts and even joint
projects and, at the political level, the potential of culture for
development has been seized and several decision makers in ACP countries have
already declared their intention to intensify their work on cultural
policies.

The African and EU Heads of States decided, in 2007, to change the nature of
the inter-continental partnership between Africa and the EU. The principles
guiding the relationship are dialogue, common objectives, mutual
responsibilities and shared benefits.

Subsequently, the 3rd Africa-EU Summit decided, in December 2010, to
‘/confirm the joint determination to strengthen cooperation in the area of
cultural goods and other areas of cultural cooperation’/. To operationalise
the political commitment, priority was given to:

1. To raise awareness among decision makers on the importance of the
protection of cultural goods (PoCG) against plunder, theft and illicit
trafficking for stability, security and sustainable development (increased
understanding of situations, trends and dynamics, improved inventories and
digitalization of such inventories, improved customs, police and heritage
management resources, monitoring capacity and improved design of policies and
programs).

2. To provide recommendations and priority actions to enhance the PoCG in
Africa, taking into due consideration current gaps at pan African and
regional levels.

3. To identify interested parties and outline operational modalities in the
areas of digital cultural archiving for sustainable development and cultural
data and cultural goods monitoring in Africa.

To realise these objectives, the 3-day Workshop will bring together a wide
range of thematic experts in the field of the protection of cultural goods

(incl. heritage management and law enforcement) as well as representatives
from key institutions active in this area. Stakeholders from the five African
regions, the African Union Commission and the EU Member States, the UNESCO,
Union économique et monétaire ouest-africaine (UEMOA), the European
Commission, INTERPOL, ICOM International, WCO and others as appropriate will
participate.

The World Bank has described urbanization as ‘the defining phenomenon of
the 21st century’. 90% of urban growth is happening in the developing world
and over 50% of urban dwellers are youth. Two billion new urban inhabitants
are expected in the next 20 years.

In the face of such an evolution and the potential risk of alienation of a
growing number of urban populations, new models for viable, diverse,
peaceful, creative and vibrant cities are needed in the developing world.
