Heritage, Culture and Tourism: Policy and Practice for Maximising Results

London, United Kingdom, 16-20 June 2014

The one-week Public Administration International (PAI) study programme Heritage, Culture and Tourism: Policy and Practice for Maximising Results will take place in central London, and is designed mainly for policy-makers and senior experts working in government ministries and agencies and in non-governmental organisations concerned with the management and funding of heritage conservation and tourism. Applications are also welcome from those in the voluntary and private sectors who wish to gain insights into how heritage, culture and tourism contribute to economic development and to engage in dialogue with officials and experts with responsibilities in this field.

The programme will broaden the participants' knowledge and understanding of the issues surrounding heritage and cultural policy; examine the relationships between heritage and culture and other government priorities such as education, housing, tourism development, and economic development, raise awareness of the issues, opportunities and challenges surrounding heritage and culture, and suggest ways in which they can be effectively addressed in different country contexts.
