(p.313) 9 Regional Trends and Approaches
International Cultural Heritage Law

Chapter 9 examines four regional systems of protection, namely in Africa (the African Union), the Americas (the Organization of American States), Europe (the Council of Europe), and South-east Asia (ASEAN) along with two non-geographically based organizations—the Organization of Islamic States and the Non-aligned Movement. Common contextual issues are identified, in particular placing protection firmly within a human rights context, giving importance to the role of cultural heritage in ensuring sustainable development, and the consideration given to the relative roles of government vis-à-vis other actors and stakeholders. However, the ways in which these are conceptualized and presented differ radically, for example with Europe espousing a highly individualistic and pluralistic approach while South-east Asia takes a much more communal approach that values unity in diversity.
