Memorandum of Understanding between Human Rights law Centre and Heritage International Institute

The Human Rights Law Centre recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the newly established Heritage International Institute. The Institute aims at protecting and promoting tangible and intangible cultural and natural heritage and it is created under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy. We are delighted to open up exciting new research lines in collaboration with, among others, the University of Switzerland (Zurich), the Universities Network for Children in Armed Conflicts, the East-West Institute (Italy), the University of Florence (Italy), Sapienza University (Italy), McGill University (Canada) and the University of Kufa (Iraq).

The HRLC will work closely with the Department of Heritage and Human Rights, Accessibility and Inclusion Strategies and the Department for Heritage and Informatics Affairs, New Technologies and Artificial Intelligence of the Institute supporting ongoing research and policy initiatives. The HRLC will also contribute with a research report as well as policy-oriented outputs on “The Legal Design for the European Collaborative Cloud for Cultural Heritage: Mapping Legal and Human Rights Challenges of the Digitalisation of Cultural Heritage”.

Dr Mando Rachovitsa, Deputy Director of the HRLC, and Dr Andrea Pelliconi, member of the HRLC, sit on the Advisory Board of the Heritage International Institute.
