In 2019, the ICOMOS International Scientific Committee for Archaeological Heritage Management (ICAHM) is proud to announce that the 2019 ICAHM Annual Meeting. This event will provide a meeting ground for preservationists and local communities and indigenous groups in South America. The conference themes elicit contributions about legal frameworks, intellectual and TEK property rights, bioethics, aboriginal and community archaeology, and dialogue on controlling and mitigating the impacts of plundering and illegal trade.
This 2019 meeting will engage national ICOMOS committees in South America and globally to consider the themes within the overall context of “Archaeological Heritage and World Heritage Sites, Towards the Sustainable Management of Landscapes”. Shifting from sites to landscapes addresses broader communities engaged and impacted by world heritage designations, and especially indigenous peoples, their participation in decision-making, and their control over their indigenous places and traditional knowledge.
Please note that the language of this conference is English and Spanish.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Arica, Chile!
