Conservation and Development
The main principle underlying this network is that conservation of cultural heritage is affected by local, national and international socio-economic factors associated with the contexts where it is carried out, but conversely conservation can also significantly affect and invigorate socio-economic development. Conservation of cultural heritage can be used as a tool leading to improvement in peoples lives. Cultural traditions embodied in physical structures support identity, civil society, disaster recovery, and economic prosperity. At the same time, however, conservation may be used to shape political and economic development following agendas that may not correspond to the needs or desires of the local communities. This research network will bring together researchers to critically examine conservation's impact in social and political arenas to more comprehensively understand how its implications and guide future projects, especially in the areas identified below: 1. Areas of socio-cultural, economic and/or ecological development. 2. Areas of post-conflict reconstruction (ongoing conflict and/or conflict prone will also be considered). 3. Areas of reconstruction due to natural disasters. Although these areas are independent they may also overlap in some contexts.
