Human rights and cultural heritage training, November 2020
The team at Our Common Diginity and Icomos-Brasil are looking forward to offering a week-long workshop on Human Rights and Heritage Management 9-13 November 2020, where we will focus on what can be considered the two most difficult aspects of human rights theory: (1) how do we understand "culture" and (2) how can we deal with the fact that some rights are group-based or collective and others are individual? How can we balance conflicts between the rights of different communities?
To submit your application, you must submit a summary in which you address a specific issue or problem in your own work that seems to involve human rights and which you suspect can be better managed or resolved by being more human rights conscious. How has it been addressed historically and what is the current management approach? Send your short report to hrba[at]icomos.org.br by 30 October 2020. Summaries related to the workshop proposal will be selected.
How and when?
The workshop will be held in Spanish from 9am to 5pm (-3 UTC), in online format. There is a limit of 25 participants. The target audience is researchers, professionals and managers of cultural heritage. The online format allows the admission of applicants from anywhere.
