ICCROM International Course on First Aid to Cultural Heritage in Times of Conflict, from 24 September - 26 October 2012 (5 weeks). Application deadline: 15 April 2012.
Armed conflicts world wide continue to involve deliberate or accidental damage to cultural heritage. Conflicts result in the weakening of governments and societies and endanger the core values that hold communities together. The protection and recovery of Cultural heritage can play a crucial role in rebuilding societies and in overcoming the sense of loss and displacement.
Notwithstanding, in times of conflict, any operation will be delayed as ensuring security and safety of people takes precedence. As a result, it is essential for the concerned professionals working in these areas to understand how and when to intervene to secure or recover cultural heritage while law enforcement, peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts are under way.
The course therefore, will provide participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to analyze a conflict; understand its underlying causes; its manifestations including its impact on cultural heritage and identify various actors who could be involved in protecting cultural heritage.
