In the framework of the celebrations of the 40th Anniversary of the World Heritage Convention,  the Andalusian Institute of Cultural Heritage (IAPH) is organising a round table meeting taking place on 19th March 2012 in Málaga, Spain.

Specialists in the field of cultural heritage, architects, archaeologists, cultural managers, ethnologists, art historians, etc. will discuss the development of cultural policies in Latin America after the adoption of the World Heritage Convention. The round table will reflect upon steps taken by different Latin America countries to recognise their heritage values and specifically the work done by the Regional Project of Cultural Heritage organised by UNESCO and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) between 1976 and 1995.
