Duration: 0:28:33 | Added: 22 Nov 2016
Prof. Matthews discusses initiatives by RASHID International to help protect, preserve and raise awareness of Iraq’s cultural heritage. Despite having only been in existence for a couple of months, RASHID already has over 70 members from across the world.

RASHID International is a multi-national group of academics, professionals and individuals with an engagement in the cultural heritage of Iraq. In this talk I will present and discuss the aims, objectives, plans and aspirations of this organisation, situating the issues of Iraq’s cultural heritage within a broad international context and including consideration of wider legal issues around destruction and protection of cultural heritage.
