Community-based Heritage Indicators for Peace: a tool for measuring peace

“…Little effort has been made to analyze the complex relations between heritage, conflict, peace and individual freedom. The lack of heritage-based metrics for peace has also placed professionals on-the-ground in a difficult position. They bear a heavy responsibility to ensure that their interventions, aimed at heritage safeguard, ‘do no harm’ and support peace, but they lack tools and guidance on how to do this.


Community-based Heritage Indicators for Peace addresses the above-mentioned gaps. It outlines an easy-to-use methodology for developing context-specific heritage indicators for peace that are based on how communities and individuals perceive and use heritage in situations of peace.”
