Workshop : Smart Heritage Protection

March 29, 2017

Workshop

fromdu 30 May 2017 toau 31 May 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Slovenian Evaluation Society and Republic of Slovenia – Ministry of Culture,

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Ljubljana, Slovenia

Description :
The Background: The Council of Europe (CoE) has recently adopted the ‘Strategy for the cultural heritage in Europe in the 21st Century‘ that takes entirely new and innovative – interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral approach to heritage policy. It involves new intervention logic that relies on synergies among heritage stakeholders. The new approach is ‘smart’ in the sense that it its content is integrative, inclusive for stakeholders and also financially favourable.
The Strategy is founded on three integral components: the “Social”, the “Development” and the “Knowledge” one. The challenge is how to enhance all three components in a synergic way. The CoE Strategy suggests that overall consistency derives from the balance between the components and from the strength of their convergence.
Methodological solution to the CoE new approach has been developed by the Slovenian Evaluation Society. The core methodology consists of combining three standard procedures: Leopold impact matrix (CoE “Challenges” X CoE “Recommendations”), square input-output matrix, correlation matrix with Venn diagram as a schematic presentation of results (synergies).
The aim of the workshop is to present the Strategy in the light of its novel approach in general terms, its methodological specificities, its background rationale. The aim is also to present possibilities for the practical application of our methodology to programming, project management, setting priorities, coordination of lack of agreement among stakeholders, and evaluation of impacts of programs and projects. The novel approach is also a generic one and therefore applicable to territorial governance, nature conservation, urban/rural development, and other policies/programmes that intersect with heritage policy.
The participants are not requested to have any previous expert knowledge in methodological issues.
Organizer: Slovenian Evaluation Society and Ministry of Culture RS, with valuable support by ICOMOS Slovenia, CIOFF Slovenija, Creative Europe Slovenia, CMEPIUS Slovenia. Continue reading…

Heritage Science is a cross-cutting domain that embraces a wide range of research disciplines supporting the various aspects of tangible heritage conservation, interpretation, and management. E-RIHS is the only pan-European research infrastructure for Heritage Science, led by CNR, which connects researchers in the natural sciences and humanities and fosters a trans-disciplinary culture of exchange and cooperation while offering access to a wide range of cutting-edge facilities, high-level scientific instruments, methodologies, data and tools for advancing knowledge and innovation in the study and preservation of heritage.

E-RIHS is currently in its preparatory phase (PP) working on assembling a worldwide network of affiliated partners and creating a global research infrastructure with the support of the intergovernmental organization ICCROM.

The international workshop “Towards a European research Infrastructure for Heritage Science”, that will be held in Florence March, 29 at the Convento del Maglio, aims at presenting the E-RIHS and its future perspectives.

Présentation au MAH d’objets issus du trafic illicite

14 mars 2017 – 30 septembre 2017

Musée d’art et d’histoire

Le 22 novembre 2016, le Ministère public de Genève a confisqué neuf biens archéologiques exceptionnels provenant de trois pays: Yémen (5 œuvres), Syrie (3) et Libye (1). Tous proviennent de pillages. L’affaire a débuté par un contrôle de routine de l’Administration fédérale des douanes, en avril 2013, aux Ports Francs. Ces pièces y ont été entreposées illicitement entre 2009 et 2010, soit avant le début des conflits syrien et libyen. Sur dénonciation des douanes, fin février 2016, une procédure pénale a été ouverte, qui a abouti à la séquestration des biens.

Dans l’attente d’une restitution à leurs pays d’origine, le Musée d’art et d’histoire s’est vu confier, à titre temporaire, par le Ministère public, ces neuf pièces pour en assurer la conservation et les présenter au public.

International Conference on the Preservation of Cultural Heritage During Armed Conflict

Conference

fromdu 04 April 2017 toau 06 April 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Penn Museum Joins with Penn’s Center for Ethics and Rule of Law, United States

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Philadelphia, United States

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
In March 2001, six months before the attacks of 9/11, the Taliban provoked international outrage when it destroyed two Ancient statues of the Buddha carved into a hillside in the Bamiyan valley in Afghanistan. Mullah Mohammed Omar, the Taliban’s leader at time, considered the statues idolatrous, and the effort to destroy them was part of a broader effort to purge the nation of pre-Islamic cultural sites and artifacts. This episode provides a vivid illustration of the degree to which cultural property has become a target in modern warfare. Achieving a better understanding of the damage inflicted by such attacks and strengthening efforts to prevent them will be the aim of our present conference.

Beyond demoralizing the enemy in war, the obliteration and looting of sacred buildings, works of art, and religious articles has the additional purpose of effacing a people’s connection to a particular locale, possibly paving the way for the permanent displacement of that population. Thus, the destruction of cultural property is more than a material and aesthetic loss, but a component of ethnic cleansing and genocide. Seeing the problem in this light adds greater urgency to the effort to stop such tragic acts.

This two-day conference will attempt to solidify the moral and legal basis for preserving art and culture against destruction, and the extent of the duty to do so. Should we risk lives to protect art and culture? Or should we intervene in the destruction of culture only when it is incident to our other military aims? The conference will also examine how art is used to fund terrorism and what methods and means can be introduced to eliminate the black market in looted art. What responsibility does an occupying force have to prevent its own forces from taking “souvenirs,” and what responsibility does it have to protect those same artifacts from looting or destruction by the occupied nation’s own citizens or from neglect by bureaucratic incompetency or indifference? Finally, the conference will discuss efforts to bring perpetrators to justice and create an international legal framework for preventing such incidents in the future.

Keynote Panel Discussion at the Penn Museum is Open to the Public Tuesday, April 4, 5:00 to 6:30 pm
