SAFEGUARDING ENDANGERED CULTURAL HERITAGE
Co-organised by the Department of Culture & Tourism Abu Dhabi and the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, the Safeguarding Endangered Cultural Heritage conference took place in Emirates Palace over two days.
The conference was hosted by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, and France’s president at the time, Francois Hollande. The by-invitation-only event brought together heads of states and representatives of governments, international organisations and major non-profit organisations as well as experts in a wide variety of fields, from museums to archaeologists, from religious figures to Interpol officials, to discuss how to protect cultural heritage in areas of conflict.
"Many congratulations on the conference. It was obvious that the bits DMH were covering were the bits that worked smoothly!"
