Abstract

his book is an attempt to implement lessons learned in the course of Heritage management for post-crisis recovery of urban centers. Cultural heritage is managed through deferent practices using diverse tools of management in order to create and plan strategies to help communities and urban centers to recover from a crisis they passed through. The diversity of crisis, such as natural disasters, wars, economic and social crisis, migration, and civil wars, covered in the different chapters of the book shows the power and important role that heritage can play in recovery. Cultural heritage analyzed and used in the different strategies drawing is covering wide horizon of tangible, intangible, material, and immaterial heritage, by defining its value to the community and assessing the impact of managing the heritage, not only by recovering or reconstruction, on the recovery of the community from the crisis. The strategies did not aim or focus on the recovery of heritage, but on the recovery of the urban center through heritage use and implementation, thus the book rather than management of heritage recovery, is more about heritage management for recovery.
