including high-level policy makers, artists and professionals, senior

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 intensity and the number of attacks against cultural heritage has
increased significantly in recent years. Persecution of individuals for
cultural or religious reasons, combined with the systematic destruction of
their cultural heritage, marked the emergence of a form of cultural cleansing
that is unprecedented in recent history. The targeting of cultural diversity
has become a key aspect of the humanitarian and security challenges in the
regions concerned. The protection of cultural diversity can contribute to
restoring social cohesion and to opening prospects to resolve crises,
particularly in protracted conflict situations. Respect for cultural
diversity is also essential for reconciliation, national dialogue and
reconstruction. The rehabilitation of heritage, the practicing of traditions,
but also the strengthening of cohesion through an inclusive social fabric
that is respectful of cultural diversity, can contribute to the restoration
of security and peace.

To discuss how this vision can strengthen conflict prevention and crisis
management policies, *UNESCO *is organizing *a High-level meeting and
technical conference*, in partnership with *the European Union*, and with the
support from *the Government of Flanders*.

*Programme Summary*

Cultural Diplomacy, Protecting Cultural Rights in Protracted Crisis, Culture
and Arts for Dialogue, Conflict Resolution and Stabilization, Culture for
Recovery, Rehabilitation and Resilience, Working with Law Enforcement to
