Heritage is often seen as a key ingredient for local, national and international identities. It is invoked for separation and conflict, but equally as a way of reconciling communities and overcoming tensions. Indeed the very idea of heritage, its evolution and shifting meanings are the product of transnational exchanges over the last centuries.
