Abstract

This poster set out an exciting area of potential research in the area of sustainable conservation of
heritage, in order to start a dialogue with potential partners. It suggested that harm may be caused to
our heritage by other social policy measures,which of themselves may be highly desirable (such as visitor
safety or access for people with disabilities). It suggested that existing techniques of environmental
impact analysis, risk assessment and risk management can readily be adapted to the field of heritage protection.
Three main objectives were discussed which were firstly to identify conflicts resulting from social
policies, secondly to develop a holistic risk management tool and thirdly to provide practical information
and guidelines to site owners,managers and policy makers.Essentially,our proposal was designed to find
a means of achieving a suitable methodology for decision making by heritage managers.We expect such a project to produce a blueprint for a methodology which would find wide application by heritage site
managers throughout Europe. It would focus attention on the need to be aware of the special needs and
compromises that are necessary if heritage is to be properly accessed and protected.
