Event description

Description

With Dr Zaki Aslan, the Director of ICCROM-ATHAR at the Royal Geographical Society, London.

The preservation of cultural heritage during times of ongoing conflict may seem superfluous, even inappropriate, amidst heavy death tolls. However, its use in post-crisis recovery is globally regarded as invaluable for long-term cultural, social and economic development. Recognition of heritage’s role in offering hope and pride in the most difficult of circumstances cannot be ignored.

We will also welcome back Syria’s Director General for Antiquities and Museums, Prof. Maamoun Abdul Karim via video, who will give us the very latest position on his country’s besieged cultural heritage.
