Research Projects 1948 – Today

Cultural Heritage Management

A full list of all BIAA supported projects since 1947 in Cultural Heritage Management


The promotion, management and regulation of cultural heritage is a complex process involving many different agents and stakeholders on local, national and international levels. It is a critical element of public policy involving a diverse range of actors such as international organisations, governmental ministries and agencies, political parties, private organisations, museums and local communities. How cultural heritage is produced and consumed, interpreted and understood can have profound impacts on structuring social and economic interaction and decision‐making. Likewise, it influences the formation of social values and ideas as well as no ons of common identity and history. It also affects economic and infrastructural development across a range of different levels. Cultural Heritage Management can be related to Restoration, Conservation and Preservation Projects, as well as the investigation of public perception regarding heritage.
