How can Europe's cultural heritage be promoted as a means of encouraging intercultural dialogue and enhancing people's quality of lives ? In this volume Robert Pickard explores this question and analyses how the Council of Europe can develop synergies between sectoral policies related to architectural, archaeological, movable, intangible and natural heritage, drawing on its main related instruments (cf. companion volume 1). This book also presents the relationship that exists with other international organisations working in the field. It will be useful for all of those working in the field of cultural heritage, students and academics, lawyers and all those interested in discovering more about the role of heritage in everyday life.
