The Human Dimension of Heritage in the EU

April 6, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

This panel will consider both the human rights law dimension of cultural heritage, and the role that heritage plays in protecting and realizing all human rights, comprising cultural rights. Our speakers will first explain that human rights law is central for the legal operationalization of heritage as it responds to the increasing global awareness of the value of heritage for societal relations, intergenerational and inter-community dialogue, development and peace. Then, while focusing on community participation and inclusion, the relationship between human rights and cultural law and policy will be debated in the context of the European Union and Council of Europe. The panel will particularly refer to the protection of cultural rights of minorities, Indigenous peoples, and migrants.
