In 2022 Slovakia shall present its candidature for 2022–2026 to the Intergovernmental Committee for Intangible Cultural Heritage at the elections to be held during the ninth session of the General Assembly of States Parties to the 2003 Convention. This candidature builds on our strong expertise in safeguarding our living heritage as a vital source of a sustainable way of living and the preservation of cultural diversity. Slovakia has relevant institutions, an expert platform, and a solid team of high-quality experts from the most diverse areas of ICH safeguarding. Slovak expert Ľubica Voľanská is a member of the Evaluation Body of the Intergovernmental Committee and has recently been elected its Chairwoman. Slovakia ratified the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2006 but has never been a member of the Intergovernmental Committee. The equitable rotation of state parties in the Intergovernmental Committee is the best way to promote inclusiveness and diversity and to ensure a voice is given to communities all over the world.
