International Law and Cultural Heritage

— Teaching and training program

Our teaching and training program fosters ethical leadership and rigorous professionalism in the Culture sector, with an emphasis on law and policy development.

The first phase of our program (2019-2022) focuses on facilitating knowledge transfer and capacity building in our region among Indigenous peoples and small island States, and women and girls in the field of cultural heritage protection.

The UNESCO Chair is affiliated with the Institute of Cultural Heritage Law at Renmin Law School, Siena-Tulane Cultural Heritage Law Summer School, and the Art Law Summer School hosted by the University of Opole.

We welcome enquiries concerning applications for our specialist undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses.

‘Culture is the essence of being human.’

(UNESCO, 1970)

UTS acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the Boorooberongal people of the Dharug Nation, the Bidiagal people and the Gamaygal people upon whose ancestral lands our university stands. We would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present, acknowledging them as the traditional custodians of knowledge for these lands.

The UNESCO Chair and UTS supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart and its implementation in full.
