This committee was created in 2003 at the initiative of the Coalitions for Cultural Diversity as a mean to facilitate cooperation, development of common positions and actions.

Particularly, the ILC promoted the elaboration of a convention on cultural diversity by the UNESCO.The ILC delegates participated as observers in the international sessions of negotiations for the production of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, thus ensuring that the voice of cultural professionals was heard during this labor intensive process.
