Intangible Heritage

The Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage has been adopted in 2003 and became effective in 2006. After joining the convention Latvia started establishing a Latvian National Register and a draft bill in favour of intangible cultural heritage. This work is coordinated by the Latvian Ministry of Culture, which is responsible for implementing the convention in Latvia. A group of experts that is also represented by the Latvian National Commission for UNESCO has been formed in 2006.
