Abstract

The three concepts of cultural diversity, heritage and human rights have been researched widely over the past 60 years since the United Nations Organization (1945) and the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO, 1946) were formed and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights(UDHR) was adopted (1948). In the scholarly world, however, the concepts have tended to be studied separately, with the various disciplines focusing more on one concept than the others, whereas, in fact, the concepts developed alongside each other and are inextricably linked. Recognition of these linkages influences the way in which the purpose of heritage conservation is seen and heritage protection work is carried out. This essay deals with the many disjunctures between conservation and human rights principles, and to engage more fully with the public whose cultural heritage is being conserved.
