Abstract (in English)

Paper presented during the ICLAFI – ICUCH Symposium, 29th June – 1st July 2017, Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands Amersfoort, The Netherlands There are many political, cultural and economic factors which affect decisions about why any individual country chooses to ratify, or not, any particular UNESCO cultural convention. This paper examines in particular how and why the detailed factors - the neighbourhood, leadership and common language/culture factors - are currently not working in the Asia and the Pacific region. The author brings up potential solutions to remedy this situation.
