Why is it important for heritage practitioners to be competent in the area of Heritage Policies, Principles, Processes and Ethics?

Heritage Policies, Principles, Processes and Ethics (HER) is a Core Competence area defined under the UNESCO Competence Framework for Cultural Heritage Management. It aims to ensure that heritage professionals are able to implement and reflect appropriate heritage principles, charters and conventions in all aspects of heritage management, including the latest advancements in the field.

The newly developed UNESCO Competence Framework for Cultural Heritage Management identifies the competence (ie. skills and knowledge) required to sustainably manage a cultural heritage site. It applies to various heritage practitioners ranging from skilled workers to decision makers and local stewards.
