Abstract (in English)

Setting is an indispensable component of the value embodiment of cultural Heritage. It is much related to the authenticity and integrity of heritage and has direct influence on people’s perception of the value of heritage and an accurate understanding of the associated history and culture. To neglect or damage the setting is to harm the heritage itself. In evaluating sites for cultural heritage nominations and their state of conservation, setting must be taken into consideration as an essential element. Meanwhile, it should be noted that evaluation of settings of different properties may have different results due the differences in their characters and relevant criteria, history, nature, social environment and other objective facts. Therefore, exploring appropriate and universally acknowledged judgment tool will be conductive to the authority, balance and representativeness of the World Heritage List and be of practical help to our colleagues in ICOMOS.
