Conflict, Cultural Heritage and Peace

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This guide offers a series of conceptual and applied frameworks to help understand the role cultural heritage plays within conflict and the potential it has to contribute to positive peacebuilding and sustainable development in post-conflict societies. Designed as a resource guide this general volume introduces the multiple roles cultural heritage plays through the conflict cycle from its onset, subsequent escalation and through to resolution and recovery. It encourages practitioners to move beyond the protection paradigm towards more engaged and participatory peacebuilding programmes centred on cultural heritage. The guide also examines comparative practice and addresses the role of the cultural and natural environment within the conflict cycle. It is aimed at students, researchers and practitioners in the field of heritage, environment, peace and conflict studies.
