ICAHM 2022 Conference The World Heritage Convention at 50: Evolution and influence on Archaeological Heritage Management since 1972

About this event

ICAHM Conference and meeting: 8-10th December 2022

With the support of the National Monuments Service (NMS), Department of Housing Local Government and Heritage ICAHM is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention with a conference on Integrity in World Heritage in Ireland.

This anniversary provides ICAHM with an important opportunity to move forward from the original ICAHM Charter and the ICAHM Salaleh Guidelines to consider integrity as a topic that is central to World Heritage, archaeological heritage management, and the development of conservation thinking in general.

The timing of the conference complements the new (revised) Tentative List for Ireland, scheduled to be launched in the summer of 2022 and the draft World Heritage Strategy for Ireland commissioned by NMS, also due to be launched in the summer/ autumn 2022, as well as the recently published Heritage Ireland 2030.

The themes of the conference fit with the strategic objectives of the NMS by engaging with a key topic for the definition of potential Outstanding Universal Value, enhancing national World Heritage knowledge, capacity and capability, raising awareness of the values of World Heritage, and contributing to international World Heritage initiatives.
