This paper highlights the importance of conserving cultural heritage for the promotion of human rights and, specifically, the right to cultural identity in Asia, and to securing intergenerational justice. It further examines the links between conservation of heritage and human rights in a legal and policy context and takes the position that it is generally not possible to separate conservation of heritage from the concept of human rights protection.
