In an attempt to rectify the dispersion of the cultural rights presented in the various international instruments that recognise them and to make progress in an audacious formulation thereof, the Fribourg Group has been meticulously working for over a decade on outlining, updating and systemising said rights. The group is formed of a multinational team of researchers, organised around the Interdisciplinary Institute for Ethics and Human Rights of the University of Fribourg, under the mandate of UNESCO. It is charged with drawing up a declaration of cultural rights and its works have included the development of a definitive definition of said rights. The purpose of this is to facilitate the inclusion of those rights ‒with the greatest technical rigour‒ in international legal protection instruments and therefore, in accordance with the respective constitutional provisions, in the internal statutes of the States who undersign them.
