Abstract

This article provides a critical perspective on the impact of two particular international legal constructs - Geographical Indications (GIs) and Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) - on cultural diversity, with a focus on culinary culture. An examination of the legal attributes of these mechanisms as well as their actual effects raises significant doubts as to their contribution to cultural diversity. The article builds on previous work, and parts of it have been excluded, but it includes a detailed analysis of the ICH inscription of Korean kimchi-making.

Keywords: Cultural diversity, UNESCO, Intangible Cultural Heritage, Mediterranean Diet, Kimchi, Korea
