Taking the opportunity of its 10th anniversary, IRCI is holding the IRCI Researchers Forum “Progress and Challenges in the Research for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage – Towards a Sustainable Future -” on 29 October 2021.

1. Objectives

The issues related to the safeguarding and transmission of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) are drawing wide public attention today amidst the growing importance of sustainable societies. In the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, research has been noted as an important measure for safeguarding ICH. As a Category 2 Centre of UNESCO, IRCI has conducted various research projects for such safeguarding in the Asia-Pacific region. This IRCI Researchers Forum aims to discuss the progress, recent trends, and future of research in the field of ICH in the Asia-Pacific region with various experts, focusing on the themes that IRCI has covered over the past 10 years, including the issues of ICH in the context of disaster risk management and SDGs, which are the contemporary challenges of the world today.
