Statement by Freemuse Executive Committee on cultural boycotts
The Executive Committee of Freemuse met in Copenhagen on 30 January 2005. One of the issues it discussed was cultural boycotts. Following an in-depth discussion, the Executive Committee took the following view.
Freemuse has acted, and will continue to act, as a forum for debate of cultural boycotts. Examples of this include continual coverage of the issue on the Freemuse website, a session at the 2nd World Conference on Censorship and a seminar facilitated by Freemuse at Womex 2003. Within our limited resources, we will continue to provide such a platform and intend to commission work on cultural boycotts and to provide another opportunity to discuss the question at the 3rd World Conference which is planned for 2006.
