The year 2021 marked the 10th anniversary of the entry into force of the Framework Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society, also known as the Faro Convention. The present publication shows that what emerged back in 2005 as a truly innovative approach is still relevant today and can also have an impact on issues beyond its traditional realm. This is illustrated through a set of articles that demonstrate the pertinence of the Faro Convention’s approach to cultural heritage in addressing different aspects, ranging from democratic participation to tourism rethinking. The wide range of topics addressed and the numerous possibilities described by the various contributors suggest that the next ten years of the Faro Convention will be as challenging and rewarding as the decade that has elapsed since its entry into force.
The publication is available in English.
