Since the adoption of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2003, a growing body of research has been undertaken on its origins, purposes, uses, implementation and impacts. While some of this research is well known and widely disseminated, a considerable portion of it remains difficult to locate.
The Secretariat is launching an interactive bibliography of research references related to the Convention. Hosted by UNESCO and led by independent researchers, this project intends to enhance the dissemination of ICH-related research for all stakeholders involved in the implementation of the 2003 Convention (States Parties, communities, civil society, practitioners and others) and to foster better communication among researchers working in the field of intangible cultural heritage.
At present, it contains more than 1000 references in 10 languages. You can now explore this interactive bibliography.
