Strategies for Cultural Property Protection
About the Webinar
This vitally important webinar aims to cover the strategies for the protection of archaeological sites and historic buildings in zones of conflict or otherwise. The speaker believes that the cultural heritage once destroyed cannot simply be rebuilt having the same original pristine image.
Through this session, the resource person makes a vivid case for the role of respect for the past in mitigating hostility and so winning the peace as well as aiding the victory, and guides us through the forest of players. Agencies so numerous, so obscure and so often ineffective might prompt the response ‘a plague on all your acronyms’.
All the more important, then, is that the speaker and his associates advocate to continue their campaign and wish to be supported by everyone who believes that cultural property has a value that lies beyond sectional interests.
