About this book

This volume looks at sustainable protection and sustainable use of cultural and natural heritage, particularly in view of the current challenges of the 21st century. For more than 40 years the World Heritage Convention has regulated the protection of the cultural and natural heritage of humankind, particularly in that heritage shall be protected if it is threatened by modern development.

The international community has also adopted sustainability and sustainable development, as objectives to facilitate the protection of cultural and natural heritage. Sustainable heritage protection and use must therefore be preserved in the face of the global challenges it faces and must be perceived in terms of societal, political and corresponding economic paradigms.

In this context, she has, since 2010, positioned Heritage Studies paradigmatically in the interest of human development and has developed it progressively into its own discipline with a sophisticated interdisciplinary approach. She initiated the series “Heritage Studies” to support the process of scientific development discursively. Prof. Dr. Albert is co-editor and also a member of the editorial advisory board for this publication.

Reviews

“This edited volume makes an important contribution to the current knowledge that aims to critically navigate sustainability in tourism. This volume would make an excellent resource for undergraduate students, as well as an important resource for graduate students specifically interested in the pursuit of research in sustainability in heritage studies.” (Karla Boluk, Conservation and Management of Archaeological Sites, February, 2019) ​
