Cultural heritage law and its response to human rights principles and practice has gained renewed prominence on the international agenda. The recent conflicts in Syria and Mali, China's use of shipwreck sites and underwater cultural heritage to make territorial claims, and the cultural identities of nations post-conflict highlight this field as an emerging global focus. In addition, it has become a forum for the configuration and contestation of cultural heritage, rights and the broader politics of international law. The manifestation of tensions between heritage and human rights are explored in this volume, in particular in relation to heritage and rights in collaboration and in conflict, and heritage as a tool for rights advocacy. This volume also explores these issues from a distinctively legal standpoint, considering the extent to which the legal tools of international human rights law facilitate or hinder heritage protection. Covering a range of issues across Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and Australia, this volume will be of interest to people working in human rights, heritage studies, cultural heritage management and identity politics around the world.

It is explicitly a volume about "challenging legal discourses" and, as such, presents a timely contribution that sheds light on this particular angle of the link between heritage, culture, and rights. Overall, it is an interesting and accessible volume for anyone with an interest in heritage and rights, and a legal background is not strictly necessary. -- Anne-Laura Kraak, Faculty of Arts and Education, Deakin University, Victoria, Australia * International Journal of Cultural Property * Overall, this volume highlights some of the challenges and questions that arise when examining the intersection of human rights law and cultural heritage, including the challenge to marry the different values ascribed to cultural heritage. Moreover, the book provides yet another recognition of the need for an interdisciplinary approach to the research of cultural heritage protection and preservation. The authors present a thoughtful overview of core themes, providing an excellent introduction to this field of study in a clear and readable manner. This book is therefore highly recommended for practitioners and students alike. -- Emiline Smith * Law and Society Review * This compilation brings hard questions about culture, cultural heritage and society into better focus... The scholarship demonstrated here deserves a strong recommendation for making more explicit the link between cultural heritage provision and human rights. Heightened awareness of the connection and its darker side makes it easier to develop international standards to advance rights relating to cultural heritage. If the restorative and transformative dimensions of cultural heritage for society can be kept in view, as this work does, change may start to happen. -- Christa Roodt, University of Glasgow * International Journal of Heritage Studies * Heritage, Culture and Rights possesses the kind of academic breadth of vision that indicates that it is destined to become a classic book in its category. The growing acknowledgement of the importance of local and global questions emerging at the intersection of heritage studies, human rights and the development agenda ensures the future importance of a work that seeks to bridge the gap between disciplinary 'silos' and build a constructive dialogue between disciplines, values and stakeholders. -- Gabriele D'amico Soggetti, Freie Universitat * Australian Journal of Human Rights *
