ZOOL40360 Heritage Legislation (World Heritage Convention)

This module will cover the origin and development of the World Heritage Convention using case studies of selected World Heritage properties. It will deal with how the World Heritage Convention operates, from the nomination process and the associated Global Strategy for a Representative, Balanced and Credible World Heritage List, to the monitoring and periodic reporting of World Heritage properties and the role of the List of World Heritage in Danger. Students will also explore how the World Heritage Convention is linked and relevant to other international conventions, legislation and institutions, which support environmental and cultural heritage conservation.
