Cultural Heritage Resource

"Established in 2008, the Cultural Heritage Resource (CHR) comprises a comprehensive source of reliable information about the conflicting claims that are made on the world’s cultural heritage. It covers such issues as the trade, collection and repatriation of cultural objects, the political appropriation or destruction of cultural heritage, and the threats posed to cultural heritage by urban and rural development projects. The CHR is intended to improve public understanding of these and related issues and in so doing promote the formulation of more effective policy responses. The CHR comprises four inter-linked sections: Chronicle, Reference, Research, and Documentation."
