ICICH – Intangible Heritage

International Scientific Committee on Intangible Cultural Heritage

Consistent with the aims of ICOMOS, the objectives of ICICH are to:

  • Promote international cooperation in the identification, study and solution of issues related to the ethical identification, protection, interpretation, and management of the intangible cultural associations attributed to monuments and sites
  • Co-operate with the International Scientific Committees of ICOMOS in reviewing doctrinal documents as well as management and conservation practices, in light of the role of intangible attributes in the significance and values of cultural heritage sites
  • Advise ICOMOS on any role it may have in the implementation of, or other activities associated with, UNESCO’s International Convention on Intangible Cultural Heritage
  • To advise ICOMOS on the role of intangible attributes, in the role it plays in the implementation of other UNESCO Conventions and international treaties, such as the World Heritage Convention and The Hague Convention

ICICH carries out its activities within the framework of a triennial program, through, among other things, conferences, workshops and other means for direct inter-personal exchanges, study visits, publications, specialist advisory services to ICOMOS and others.
