Naseer Araft - The Impact of Cross-Disciplinary Conservation on Social Development 16th & 17th May at the UCL Institute of Archaeology

Naseer Arafat (Arafat Soap Factory, Palestine)
Restoration in a crisis area: a struggle towards development

Arafat discusses restoration works of Old Nablus in three periods of its history: 1994-2000, under the management of the Municipality of Nablus; 2000-2008, when efforts were mainly focused on reconstruction and emergency work to maintain historic buildings from falling; and 2008 to the present, which coincides with the return of relative political stability and when conservation management is focused on the needs of the local population and empowerment of major stakeholders.
