ITCILO (International Training Centre of the International Labour Organisation) is launching a call for applications for the master programme in World Heritage and Cultural Projects for Development, which will take place from 16 October 2017 to 12 October 2018.
The Master is designed by the University of Torino, the Politecnico di Torino and the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITCILO), in collaboration with UNESCO and ICCROM.
The programme provides a solid foundation in a variety of cultural economics topics and the value chain of cultural and natural sites. It explores in detail the economic, social, institutional and legal considerations that govern the diverse categories of UNESCO-designated World Heritage Sites. The programme also puts emphasis on strategic management competencies for the preservation and promotion of these sites as well as on monitoring the efficacy and adequacy of site management plans and associated cultural projects.
The Master will take place from 16 October 2017 to 12 October 2018 and is divided into three major learning cycles:
- The first cycle will be conducted through a distance learning component that will start on 16 October 2017 and will end on 19 January 2018.
- The second cycle, from 22 January 2018 to 18 May 2018, is a face-to-face learning period that will be held in Turin, Italy, at the International Training Centre of the ILO. Class attendance is compulsory for the entire period.
- The third cycle, from 21 May 2018 to 12 October 2018, will be a research and study period during which students are expected to finalize their final project.
Deadline for application is on 30 June 2017.
