About this survey

Overview and objectives

UNESCO acknowledges the essential role of higher education institutions in building the capacity of a dynamic culture sector. Whilst there has been an increase in post-graduate heritage education in the Asia-Pacific region in the past decade, most of these programmes focus on the management of tangible heritage (conservation, architecture and archaeology) and little emphasis is made on the intangible cultural heritage (ICH). Representatives from higher education institutions in the Asia-Pacific region, during an UNESCO symposium in Bangkok in 2015, highlighted the need for more exchange and collaboration opportunities among the tertiary education institutions in order to strengthen their ICH-related programmes.

With the support of the International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region (ICHCAP), UNESCO Office in Bangkok launches a survey which aims at gaining a better understanding of the existing ICH-related tertiary programmes and opportunities related to ICH in higher education. The survey outcome will inform a discussion and the development of recommendations to further networking activities among tertiary education institutions in the region.

We invite you to complete this survey questionnaire and thank you for sharing your valuable insights with us.
