LIVE UPDATE: Dr Srirak Plipat provides key recommendations on artistic freedom at today's CSO Forum session

"Freemuse supports recommendations from the CSO forum. In addition, we encourage further action plans to advance artistic freedom and mobility.

Recommendations:

■ It is essential that the implementation of freedom of artistic expression in the 2005 Convention is aligned with other developments and debates on international human rights including freedom of expression and cultural rights.

■ Freemuse reminds the Member States and UNESCO of the recommendations UNSR in the field of cultural rights that prior-censorship bodies or systems (such as national censorship board) should be discontinued and replaced it with other means and bodies, such as age rating of artwork. This is a critical step to comply with Article 19 of ICCPR, which requires that any restrictions of freedom of expression must meet the test of necessity and proportionality.

■ Freemuse encourages UNESCO to strengthen and improve its mechanism for individual complaints (Procedure of 104 EX/ Decision 3.3) including making it more accessible for direct victims and CSOs."
