ICOMOS Discussion paper on Evaluations of World Heritage Nominations related to Sites Associated with Memories of Recent Conflicts
ICOMOS is pleased to share its discussion paper on the “Evaluations of World Heritage Nominations related to Sites Associated with Memories of Recent Conflicts”
This discussion paper complements the studies initiated by the World Heritage centre working groups on the interpretation of sites of memory (not confined to World Heritage properties) and the use of criterion (vi). It offers an ICOMOS perspective on evaluation of sites associated with the memories of recent conflicts in relation to the World Heritage Convention. It considers how the World Heritage Committee has considered such sites in the past, and the issues that they raise in relation to Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) and the idea of commonality.
