SESSION 07: Preventing earthquake destruction in world heritage sites: learning from empiricism to regulations

The cultural heritage may be exposed to different kinds of hazards and disasters, some of them -as earthquakes- such destructive as sudden. A specific particularity of this problem is crossed by the unpredictability factor that usually has an impact over heritage. Therefore, regulations seem to provide not only restrictions but mainly preventing rules in order to protect the cultural heritage. Thus, this session raises some questions such as, how do earthquakes affect different cultural heritage expressions around the world?; how do local, national and international regulations and conventions protect the cultural heritage considering quakes?; or which role carry out the empiric dimension among the relationship between earthquake destruction and cultural heritage protection rules? An international and multicultural discussion leads to a better understanding of this crucial issue.
