Abstract
'VALOGLOB project has the scope to analyse Faro-Convention (2005) using a research methodology based on a systemic approach (Morin, 2005), a cross-cultural comparative study (Demorgon, 2004) with the World Heritage Convention (UNESCO, 1972) and field case studies in Europe, Euro-Mediterranean area and Russia. These objectives have the aim to better understand theoretical and practical mechanisms of a legal text (Faro-Convention, 2005) with great impacts on civil society (museums and inhabitants). Since the Second World War, tens of Conventions, Recommendations and Declarations on cultural heritage were adopted by governments. These normative instruments are rarely studied in a cross-cultural approach with main focus on citizenship as a key actor regarding its implementation. Faro-Convention (2005) stresses its aims on the values of cultural heritage for society. In time of globalisation, cultural heritage cannot be anymore a topic discussed only by specialists, but a dialogue in permanent interaction with the civil society in order to build a common European identify based on “diversity” and “unity”. To carry out this project, the researcher (PhD) has a great research experience (temporary Lecturer at University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France), has been involved in French and international projects (FP6, FP7, AECID, ANR), got a research award nomination titled “Cultural Policy Research Award” (CPRA, 2010), has published 3 peer-reviewed articles has an extended professional experience (Cambodia, Gabon, Sudan, Latin America, Russia, etc.) in international organisations (International Council of Museums (ICOM), UNESCO, APSARA, etc.). The IUEE, Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) will give to the applicant the opportunity to carry out her research project in a major European and multicultural centre for intercultural dialogue and cultural policies dissemination for the Mediterranean basin and beyond (Russia).'
