Abstract (in English)

As an Advisory Body to the World Heritage Convention, ICOMOS, the International Council on Monuments and Sites, monitors closely the challenges posed by COVID-19 to cultural heritage and World Heritage sites and of the impact of such threats on Human Rights. For many years, ICOMOS has been working to increase awareness of its members, national authorities and the States party to the World Heritage Convention to take into account Human Rights. ICOMOS is particularly proud to have initiated in 2011 the "Our Common Dignity Initiative" in close cooperation with ICCROM and IUCN, to promote rights based approaches in World heritage processes and has reiterated its commitment to Human Rights by adopting the Buenos Aires Declaration making the 70th anniversary of the UDHR.
