13. Safeguarding Heritage: From Legal Rights over Objects to Legal Rights for Individuals and Communities?

  • Marie Cornu (author)
Legally, there are many different ways to organise the connection between memory, history and heritage and, in this respect, diversity rules. Cornu looks at French Law as an example of heritage with regard to memory and history and gives the 2003 UNESCO Convention as a case study which showcases the point at which the concept of intangible heritage was introduced into international law for the first time. Cornu demonstrates that the boundary of what constitutes heritage within law has undoubtedly changed.
