Is the notion of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) included in Chilean legislation? Why is it important for Chile to have specific laws that regulate and protect ICH? UNESCO has promoted the recognition and appreciation of the ICH through the “Convention for the Safeguarding of the ICH”, ratified by Chile in 2009. This Convention defines ICH and establishes a series of objectives regarding its protection, respect, and raising awareness of the importance and reciprocal acknowledgement at a local, national, and international level. This paper seeks to analyze Chilean legislation and answer the question of whether ICH in the UNESCO Convention is applicable and integrated into Chilean legislation.
