Anticipating Futures for Heritage

In July 2021, as part of its Foresight Initiative, ICCROM launched a horizon scan study to gather intelligence about possible macro-environmental changes that might affect cultural heritage in the future. To undertake this work, the project engaged an interdisciplinary team of 18 researchers and two advisors from different world regions who collectively generated over 60 research reports looking out over a 15-year horizon. The study intends to serve as a starting point for an ongoing foresight process to inform the development of ICCROM’s longer-term strategy, and particularly its strategic orientations for the next planning cycle (2026–2031).

Urban Conservation and Reconstruction in Arabian Gulf - Seminar Proceedings

The conference proceedings of a seminar titled “Urban Conservation and Reconstruction in the Arabian Gulf”, held in Dubai in March 2015, introduce a much-needed thorough epistemological framework for the conservation and reconstruction of cultural heritage in the Arab Muslim world, thus contributing to challenges of universal concerns.
