Guidance on the Development of Legislation and Administration Systems in the Field of Cultural Heritage

by Robert Pickard, Strasbourg, Council of Europe Publishing, 2011, 131 pp., ISBN: 978-92-871-6922-8131

What laws should states enact to protect and promote their cultural heritage, and what administrative systems can they put in place to manage their cultural heritage policies most effectively? These are some of the questions addressed in this revised and expanded guidance document prepared by Robert Pickard. The document aims to provide authoritative information on good practice in three primary areas: architectural heritage, archaeological heritage and movable heritage. Consideration is given to integrated approaches to conservation, in particular those which take into account the global concept of sustainable development and the need for community involvement in formulating legal and institutional mechanisms.

The publication is part of a series launched in 2000 on topics of general interest, based on experience acquired through pilot projects in different countries and made available to all those involved in heritage in the Council of Europe member states.
