Abstract (in English)

proceedings of the ICLAFI SYMPOSIUM AND ANNUAL MEETING 2019 22-24 October 2019, Gaziantep, Turkey. The aim of the Symposium is to create an international platform to discuss the role of local authorities and the legislative and financial structures of different countries at local level on managing and propagating the cultural heritage, and to share the experiences and disseminate the knowledge through different examples and best practices. Conservation of cultural heritage has been assigned as a major responsibility to central governments. Yet, local authorities, especially municipalities as the territorial administrative units are in more direct contact with the day-to-day life of the local community. Local authorities are responsible for the construction, administration and maintenance of the city, including cultural heritage located within their boundaries. There are different legal and organisational structures of countries regarding the role of local authorities in management of cultural heritage; such as, planning and implementation, legislative and regulatory control, and the use of financial sources. Although the circumstances change from country to country, it is accepted that local authorities have a considerable importance in protection and management of cultural heritage. Thus, the Symposium focuses on the authority and role of local authorities in relation to the conservation, protection, use, enhancement and management of cultural heritage. 1.
