Heritage Ethics

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Heritage ethics concerns both the codes and principles that frame accepted practices in the field of heritage, as well as a much broader set of debates and philosophical concerns around the legal, moral and social justice implications of heritage. Heritage ethics have developed from concerns focused on the stewardship of cultural materials and standards of professional practice, to a contemporary focus on human rights and on how heritage is imbricated in the politics of social justice.
