Iran Heritage Foundation and the Soudavar Memorial Foundation, with support from the British Institute of Persian Studies.
This conference will focus on protecting the cultural heritage of Iran. As is well known cultural heritage worldwide is under threat, and from many countries there are stories of damage to monuments and archaeological sites allied to ongoing deterioration of cultural resources. At the moment the problem is particularly acute in Iraq and Syria, due to military activity and state-sponsored vandalism. Fortunately these problems do not exist in Iran, but nevertheless there is damage to monuments and archaeological sites caused for example by acid rain, sandstorms, earthquakes, floods, neglect, looting and development. The aim of this conference will be to review the extent of the damage, to raise awareness of the problem, to look at the framework within which protection is currently provided, to chart best practice worldwide, and suggest some practical measures to help and support Iranian colleagues.
Speakers will include:
