The role of conservation education in reconciliation: the example of the Iraqi Institute for the Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage

In recent years, many governments have been funding cultural heritage preservation in the aftermath of conflict and other disasters.  This paper examines the Iraqi Institute for the Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage in Erbil (Iraq), as a case study in using cultural heritage education in support of reconciliation and redevelopment.  The authors discuss the collaborative development of the project, review the evolution of the educational programs over the last 5 years and the recursive approach to curriculum review and development to support a renewed community of heritage professionals in Iraq.
