      The preservation of cultural heritage is guaranteed by human rights law. As a feminist, what do you think of the cultural relativism argument stating that culture justifies a different approach to women’s rights? We must make an important distinction between cultural relativism and respect for cultural diversity. As such, Cultural Heritage, Cultural Rights, Cultural Diversity: New Developments in International Law offers a comprehensive and original overview of how the international approach to culture has evolved from a sovereignty-based idea of cultural property to a perception which emphasises the human dimension of cultural heritage.

    Cultural heritage is the legacy of physical artifacts and intangible attributes of a group or society that is inherited from past generations. Not all legacies of past generations are "heritage", rather heritage is a product of selection by society. Cultural heritage includes tangible culture (such as buildings, monuments, landscapes, books, works of art, and artifacts), intangible culture. Cultures, Conventions, and the Human Rights of Women: Examining the Convention for Safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage, and the Declaration on Cultural Diversity Valentine Moghadam Valentine M. Moghadam is professor of sociology and women's studies, and director of the women's studies program at Purdue University, Indiana, USA.

    Cultural Heritage and Human Rights, the first volume in the Cultural Heritage in a Globalized World series, use these issues and questions to contemplate cultural heritage and human rights. The cases presented are world-wide with their implications presented on a global level.   Cultural heritage could be described as a record of the genius of human beings. The legacy of artefacts, antiquities, sacred places as rituals, traditions and living expressions could be seen as unintelligible foot print left behind for the next generations to mark our path through this world.
