The UNESCO Memory of the World Programme:
Key Aspects and Recent Developments

The volume “The UNESCO Memory of the World Programme: Key Aspects and Recent Developments” responds to the growing interest in the scientific study of the Memory of the World Programme (MoW) and its core concept of documentary heritage, which have received little attention from scholarship so far. The volume, which is the sixth publication in the Heritage Studies Series, provides a first collection of relevant ideas, reflections, theoretical and methodological considerations for the study of the MoW Programme, offering a basis for follow-up activities.

The volume, edited by Ray Edmondson, Lothar Jordan and Anca Claudia Prodan, brings together 20 scholars from around the globe to present aspects deemed crucial for understanding MoW, its development, relevance and potential. The aim is to encourage academic research on MoW and to enhance the understanding of its potential and place within Heritage Studies and beyond.
