Para fomentar el debate democrático  
12-07-2004 12:40 am To mark the publication of the Human Development Report 2004 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), a debate will take place at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on July 16 from 11:00 am to 12:45 pm in Room II. UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura and UNDP Administrator Mark Malloch Brown will give a press conference from 12:45 pm to 1:00 pm.

The debate, moderated by Jean Digne, president of the Montparnasse Museum and former director of the French Association for Artistic Action (AFAA), will look at "Cultural Liberty in Today's Diverse World", a theme that doubles as the subtitle of the report. Participants will notably discuss UNESCO's actions in the area of cultural diversity and dialogue among civilizations.

Refuting the theories that say "cultural differences inevitably lead to social, economic and political conflict", the UNDP report "reveals a vast potential for the construction of a more peaceful and more prosperous world, by putting questions about culture at the heart of the theory and practice (...) of development," writes Mr Malloch Brown.

Koïchiro Matsuura, Mark Malloch Brown and International Social Sciences Council president Lourdes Arizpe, along with other distinguished French and European political figures, will speak in the presence of UNESCO permanent delegates and representatives of national commissions, NGOs and other international organizations.

The Human Development Report 2004 is under embargo until Thursday, July 15, 12:00 GMT.
