The Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) and the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) are pleased to announce the launch of the study “Exploring Cultural Heritage of the Arab Region: Potential offered for a more balanced World Heritage List”.

The aim of this joint ARC-WH- ICOMOS project, is to reflect on the inadequate balance happening on the World Heritage List within cultural sites, and analyse some of the challenges facing the Arab countries.

This study provides a preliminary assessment of the promising themes and typologies that could be considered by the Arab States Parties as a basis to expand the understanding of cultural heritage and identify the sites with potential for future World Heritage nomination proposals.
