Historische resolutie omtrent bescherming van erfgoed goedgekeurd binnen de VN veiligheidsraad
 

 

Op 24 maart 2017 werd in New York een historische resolutie goedgekeurd binnen de VN veiligheidsraad. UNESCO directeur-generaal Irina Bokova gaf haar kijk op de resolutie:

“The deliberate destruction of heritage is a war crime, it has become a tactic of war to tear societies over the long term, in a strategy of cultural cleansing. This is why defending cultural heritage is more than a cultural issue, it is a security imperative, inseparable from that of defending human lives," Director-General Bokova told the Security Council, as she spoke in support of the resolution, with Executive Director of UNODC Youri Fedotov and Commander Fabrizio Parrulli of the Carabinieri Italiani. "Weapons are not enough to defeat violent extremism. Building peace requires culture also; it requires education, prevention, and the transmission of heritage. This is the message of this historic resolution," she added. The briefing by Director-General Bokova before the Security Council marked the first time a Director-General of UNESCO has been invited in this capacity. The briefing was held at the initiative of France and Italy and under the Presidency of the United Kingdom. The Director-General went on to explain that since the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 2199 in 2015, which prohibits trade in cultural property from Iraq and Syria, efforts are well-underway to disrupt terrorist financing through the illicit trafficking of antiquities. “In a global movement launched by UNESCO, some 50 States have strengthened their legislation and are sharing information and data, to dismantle trafficking routes, to facilitate restitutions. “Together, UNESCO, INTERPOL, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, customs services, the private sector and museums are all bolstering cooperation, coordinating new action,” she said. The Programme provides a solid foundation in cultural economics, going through the value chain of cultural tangible and intangible resources. It explores in detail the economic, social, institutional and legal considerations that govern the diverse categories of heritage, enabling the monitoring of their effectiveness. It also puts emphasis on strategic management competencies and project management for UNESCO World Heritage Sites, other UNESCO designations and any kind of cultural resources.

Workshop: ‘Smart heritage protection’, 30-31 mei 2017, Ljubljana (Slovenië)
Een workshop georganiseerd in het licht van de recente strategie voor cultureel erfgoed in het Europa van de 21ste eeuw : 
 
The aim of the workshop is to present the Strategy in the light of its novel approach in general terms, its methodological specificities, its background rationale. The aim is also to present possibilities for the practical application of our methodology to programming, project management, setting priorities, coordination of lack of agreement among stakeholders, and evaluation of impacts of programs and projects. The novel approach is also a generic one and therefore applicable to territorial governance, nature conservation, urban/rural development, and other policies/programmes that intersect with heritage policy.
