Heritage and Peacebuilding


This book explores how heritage - and especially community-based heritage initiatives - can contribute to peacebuilding following periods of conflict. It reflects a core belief that heritage can provide solutions to reconciling peoples and demonstrates the amount of significant work
being carried out internationally. Based round the core themes of new and emerging ideas around heritage and peace, heritage and
peacebuilding in practice, and heritage, peacebuilding and sites, the twenty contributions seek to raise perceptions and understanding of heritage-based peace building practices. The geographical scope of the book includes contributions from Europe, notably the Balkans and Northern Ireland, the Middle East, and Kenya.
