  • About this book

  • The book proposes the new concept of "conviviability" as a principle of sustainability
  • It includes unpublished data of the author's own fieldwork and "participant decision-making" in international cultural projects and debates
  • It brings together issues on international cultural policy and cosmopolitanism which have been dealt with separately in other publications

Current theories on sustainability and security focus on political and economic concerns, while cultural components are ignored. Since the nineties, international policies on culture have focused on development, the loss of intangible cultural heritage and the management of cultural diversity. Freedom to create is the principle that will allow each individual to construct pluricultural self-adscriptions. This book argues that a cosmopolitan vision needs to link cultural identities to multiple-scale representations. Governance and peace fail if people disagree on overarching principles for developing capabilities to cooperate in a sustainable world. Conviviability is a principle of sustainability
