The ReCon Heritage project is about mounting an interdisciplinary approach using arts and humanities research to respond to a critical global challenge of the continuous destruction of cultural heritage in conflict regions. 

 

One objective is to develop transformative models of regional partnerships on sustainable transitions of peacebuilding and cultural exchange. Another objective is to establish a sustainable digital platform, supported by local young people, with help from three major international research universities.
