Correcting the Imbalances of the World Heritage List

Author

Listed:

Abstract

The official intention of the UNESCO World Heritage List is to protect the global heritage. However, the imbalance of the distribution of World Heritage Sites according to countries and continents is striking. Consequently, the World Heritage Committee launched the Global Strategy for a Balanced, Representative and Credible World Heritage List in 1994. To date, there have not been any empirical analyses conducted to study the impact of this strategy. This paper shows that the imbalance did not decrease, but rather increased over time, thus reflecting the inability of the Global Strategy to achieve a more balanced distribution of Sites.
