International Council on Monuments and Sites

«Our Common Dignity» RBA Conference South Africa 13-17/3/2017

ICOMOS South Africa has invited representatives from 17 African countries to be part of a master level pilot course in human rights and cultural heritage. The training, lead by the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights University of Oslo, will be at Ditsong Museum, Pretoria from 13 to 17 March 2017.

Broadly, the course will cover:
1. General introduction to the international human rights system, including its institutions and mechanisms;
2. Specific introduction to relevant cultural rights and texts, as well as the UN and UNESCO institutional framework; and
3. Human rights-based approach planning tools for heritage management.

Partners for the pilot training are ICOMOS South Africa, ICOMOS Norway, the African World Heritage Fund, the South African National Heritage Council, Norwegian Centre for Human Rights and Ditsong Museum, Pretoria. For further information, you may contact ctht(at)

Our Common Dignity: Towards Rights-Based World Heritage Management was started in 2007 by ICOMOS Norway. From a national focus the initiative was expanded into international collaboration between ICCROM, ICOMOS and IUCN (AB) in 2011 – in close contact and dialogue also with the World Heritage Centre.

The training is a result of the collaboration between the “heritage world” and the “human rights world”. The first Pilot Training Course in the complex topic of Human Rights and Heritage Management was in Oslo in 2016, and is being followed by training in India and South Africa.

Fagdag og årsmøte 16.mars, 2017

ICOMOS-Norge og den norske Blue Shieldkomiteen v/Axel Mykleby har besluttet og holde felles fagdag og årsmøte.

Fagdagen går fra kl 12:00 til 16:00 og holdes i konferansesalen hos Riksantikvaren.

Årsmøtet med valg av nytt styre følger etter en pause, ca kl 17:00

Tema for fagdagen er knyttet til situasjonen for kulturminner i forbindelse med krig og (natur-) katastrofer. Etter en innleding om de store ulykkene vender vi blikket hjem mot de norske verdensarvstedene og konstaterer at også her er det press på kulturminnene.

Samir Abdulac (ICOMOS-Frankrike), leder av blant annet “ICOMOS working group on the safeguarding of cultural heritage in Syria and Iraq” vil holde innledningsforedraget.

Resten av programmet vil inneholde blandt annet:

  • Axel Mykleby: Haagkonvensjonen og arbeidet til Blue Shield.
  • Ingunn Kvisterøy fra Klima- og miljødepartementet: Verdensarven – nye krav og nytt samarbeid?
  • en representant for Sweco som gjennomgår den landskapsanalysen de har laget som grunnlag for å vurdere konsekvensene for verdensarvverdiene ved etalblering av fiskeoppdrettsanlegg.

Fullt program og innkallelse til årmøtet følger.

ICOMOS Norge kjempet for å bevare Y-blokka i regejerings-kvartalet og og tapte. Saken ble sendt til ICOMOS International  Scientific Committee on 20th Century Heritage  som  utstedte en «Heritage Alert» for å prøve å bevare Y-blokka i regjeringskvartalet. Saken ble tatt opp sentralt på ICOMOS internasjonale nettside.
