The International Heritage Group is a global action network working to transform capacity building in Archaeological Heritage Management. The IHG has close links to the International Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management, part of ICOMOS. There is a well-documented world-wide need for AHM capacity building in conservation and development contexts, and to address this need IHG articulates ‘top-down’ global expectations with ‘bottom-up’ local needs, in alignment with the Millennium Development Goals and the international human rights agenda. This seminar session presents the IHG and invites debate on the goals and the methods, led by a few short papers to spur the participant’s imaginations.
