Abstract (in English)

Joan Domicelj and Duncan Marshall's "Diversity, Place and the Ethics of Conservation" introduces the concepts of cultural diversity, value difference and place. It asks the key question: how are the diverse, often sharply conflicting, values to be identified and protected within an equitable conservation plan for a single cultural place bearing several meanings? The paper outlines some exploratory steps taken by Australia ICOMOS in learning how to handle conflicting cultural values in a professional, just and effective way, and concludes with the text of a draft "Code on the Ethics of Co-existence in Conserving Significant Places". Many of the issues discussed in the paper nowadays tax the minds of conservators around the world. Such are "Cultural Heritage at Risk" and "Authenticity", to both of which this number of the journal devotes a section.
