With the generous support of the Algerian ‘National Centre of Research on Prehistory, Anthropology and History’ in Algeria (CNRPAH) and the ‘Manifestation Constantine, capitale de la culture arabe 2015’, UNESCO convenes a UNESCO expert workshop on supporting policy development in the field of intangible cultural heritage, in Constantine, Algeria, from 28 September to 2 October 2015.

The main objective of the workshop is to improve UNESCO’s impact in providing policy support to national authorities in Africa for the effective implementation of the 2003 Convention.

The first three days of the workshop are dedicated to the principal theme of policy development (28 to 30 September), while the last two days (1 to 2 October) focus on reviewing the implementation of the global capacity-building programme in Africa to date.

More specifically, the workshop aims at the following:

  • Improve the content and format of the capacity-building programme to provide policy advice effectively;
  • Propose methodologies and tools to support experts in their policy advisory mission;
  • Take stock of the lessons learnt from implementing the global programme in African countries.

The workshop addresses primarily UNESCO-certified facilitators from the Africa Region, who have substantial experience in providing training and advisory services in the context of the global capacity-building programme for the effective implementation of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. It furthermore welcomes some experts with specialized expertise in the field of cultural policy advice, which they have developed in particular in the context of implementing the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. From the UNESCO side, Culture programme specialists from field offices in Africa and from the Intangible Cultural Heritage Section participate. The CNRPAH has designated Algerian experts who will attend as observers. In total, the workshop will bring together about 45 participants.
