The digital age, and especially Internet, fundamentally transforms thedomain of creation and all its dimensions, artistic, social and economic. These transformations are accompanied by opportunities and risks for the diversity of cultural expressions, whether we consider the issue of fully benefiting from opportunities inherent to the digital age or the capacity of actors to face the challenges it brings at the national and international levels in the cultural domain. The implementation of the CPPDCE in the digital age can allow States to find answers and modes of
action (measures, policies or others) that can produce the required institutional environment for the digital revolution to become a genuine vector of innovations in the promotion and protection of a diversity of cultural expressions. Our study answers the specific following questions as proposed by the MAEDI and MCC (France):

➡ What concrete challenges to the diversity of cultural expressions
Convention Parties face in the digital era, and especially in developing countries?
➡ Which measures or policies are created to implement the 2005
Convention principles in the digital environment, and what would be
the conditions to replicate or adapt existing good practices?
➡ What could be the structure and added value of writing up new specific operational guidelines, how could these be linked to existing ones
and how can we estimate the costs associated with this operation?
