World Heritage Cities Management Workshop
CM – 02WH: World Heritage Cities
3 – 6 Sep 2014
The broad aim of this workshop is to discuss issues and complexities related to the conservation and management of UNESCO World Heritage Cities.
This 4-day workshop will introduce the concept of World Heritage City in relation to the UNESCO Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage – 1972. Using a range of case studies, we will explore some of the key aspects related to the nomination, evaluation, inscription and management of World Heritage Cities.

The discussions will outline the role of key players and institutions that are involved in the process of nomination, evaluation and inscription. These will include – the State Party, World Heritage Committee, ICOMOS and ICCROM. Special guided tours will be organised to explore the nominated sites of Shahjahanahabd (old delhi) and Lutyens’ New Delhi to assess the theoretical issues and practical challenges discussed during lectures and presentations.
