Training Course 2 – 5 May 2019

How are decisions made about the heritage? What norms are applied in decision making? Which values, principles and approaches guide those decisions?  Are all relevant rights owners and stakeholders involved?  Do all parties feel the decisions to be inclusive, effective, efficient, participatory, consensus-oriented and legitimate? Do all parties acknowledge that they have rights as well as duties?

As a course, the principal aim is to contribute to the development of a permanent and flexible tool to address the human rights with the focus on the rights of the owners and the communities in the field of heritage management.  The course follows the UN Sustainable Development Goals to promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies (target 16) targeting to ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels (16.7), public access to information and protect fundamental freedoms, in accordance with national legislation and international agreements (16.8), Promoting and enforce non-discriminatory laws and policies for sustainable development (16.B).

During the course we analyse the ways, how to:

  • Build solid relationships with communities and peoples in their work.
  • To embrace the principle of free, prior and informed consent of communities of origin before adopting measures related to their specific cultural heritage
  • Offer all possible assistance so that communities and rights holders are consulted and invited to participate actively in the whole process of identification, selection, classification, interpretation, preservation and safeguard, as well as the administration and development of cultural heritage.
  • How human rights approach helps to prevent and avoid conflicts between the rights of different communities.

The course lecturers will provide a general introduction to international human rights law, as well as international human rights law that specifically relates to culture, heritage and communities.  The course programme reflects this goal by building on group work and interactive sessions.

The pilot course has the following learning goals:

  • General introduction to the international human rights system, including its institutions and mechanisms
  • Specific introduction to relevant cultural rights and relevant heritage conventions and texts, as well as the UN and UNESCO institutional framework
  • HRBA planning tools for heritage governance and management
  • Current challenges in cooperation with heritage communities
  • Case studies from different countries and field trips.

The course will focus on perhaps two of the most difficult aspects of human rights theory: how do we understand “culture”, and how can we deal with the fact that some rights are group-based or collective and others are individual? How to balance the conflicts between the rights of different communities.

In addition to providing basic knowledge about human rights and the UN, UNESCO and IUCN systems and practices in the field of human rights, this course will discuss actual cases of heritage management in protected heritage areas in different countries. Thus all participants are requested to prepare for discussions about challenges and dilemmas in their own daily heritage work. The case study method allows the participants to apply newly acquired theoretical knowledge directly to their work, and will help ICOMOS and the course organisers accumulate knowledge about how HRBA will affect heritage work and improve this as a tool.
