Communities and rights

World Heritage and rights-based approaches
The Advisory Bodies to the World Heritage Convention - IUCN, ICOMOS and ICCROM - are collaborating to increase understanding and identify effective approaches to the rights dimension in World Heritage work. The goal is to promote the application of “good practice” in relation to human rights and World Heritage, and to develop possible tools to ensure rights issues are appropriately considered, particularly in the nomination and state of conservation processes.
