Special Session

Organiser: Benjamin DUCKE, DAI, Germany

As a response to the situation in countries such as Syria, the Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan, this session will bring together experts from the fields of cultural heritage management and safeguarding, as well as researchers and professionals from related disciplines such as architecture and urban planning. In addition, we wish to give representatives from current regions of armed conflict a voice and support them in becoming part of the international heritage network. We understand that effective and sustainable curation of the world’s cultural heritage is a complex task that also needs to take into account (among others) social, economical, political and educational aspects, and must include stakeholders from all strata of society. This session is intended as an open and initial forum, which we hope will pave the way for regular commitment by CHNT and its supporters.

We invite you to join us in shaping it.
