The Manifesto of the Association for Critical Heritage Studies (2011) argues for a more critical approach to heritage: heritage from below, writ large, in service of society. The integration of heritage and museum studies with those of community, development, memory, planning, public history and tourism is urged in the Manifesto, as is opening up to other disciplinary traditions such as anthropology, political science and sociology, for dialogue and collaboration on external research and policy projects. To this we would add the disciplines of science. The many issues facing the world today echo through the papers published in the International Journal for Heritage Studies in 2012 and 2013. This leads also to a call for broader issues-based research and, by extension, practice,  within a more apposite and reflective heritage studies.
This session's objective is to discover heritage skill and knowledge sets which can or do contribute in the broader policy environment to improved policy-making, implementation and outcomes. A non-exhaustive list of policy areas is cultural, economic, environmental, Indigenous, social and sustainable.
To achieve this objective we invite papers that demonstrate the use of:
• negotiation skills, gained through heritage practice,
• heritage understanding of place and time,
• heritage understanding of connections between people, things, places and values,
• heritage understanding of balancing conflicting values,
• heritage analytical and language skills e.g. in effectively framing policy problems.

This paper will explore the relevancy of the nascent critical heritage studies movement to the future of built heritage conservation. This analysis leads to the conclusion that critical heritage studies theory, while useful in some contexts, is potentially unworkable in practice. To date, its theoretical precepts do not offer useful ways to weigh the values of civil and conventional experts or to offer ways to resolve conflicts inherent in the Authorized Heritage Discourse (AHD). Implement...

Everyday, the number of tourists who are willing to experience sites and events with historical, social and cultural value is increasing. This demand, as the booster of cultural tourism, transforms cultural heritage sites into popular tourist attractions. The major impact of cultural tourism on a cultural heritage site is the promotion of economic developments and functional alterations in its condition. On the other hand, while conserving and inhabiting the traditional urban fabric, the p...

This paper will explore the practical status and use of the Burra Charter in Australia. The Burra Charter evolved in Australia from the Venice Charter based on the premise that the Venice Charter did not cover many of the potential heritage places that Australians considered of significance to their indigenous and colonial heritage. It ratified in the township of Burra in South Australia in 1979. Since then, it has been modified several times; in 1981, 1988, 1999 and 2013. The key professi...
