Statutes of ICOMOS of 2014

At the 18th General Assembly (Florence, Italy, November 2014), the Scientific Symposium "Heritage and Landscapes as Human Values" wanted to promote a broad discussion able to provide insights for improving the intercultural dialogue and placing the human being at the centre of the cultural debate, where heritage and landscape values represent a shared synthesis. Following presentations by 170 speakers and debates, the General Assembly adopted the "The Florence Declaration on Heritage and Landscapes as Human Values regarding the values of Cultural Heritage in building a peaceful and democratic society". This Declaration encourages an in depth reflection on the ethics and processes of heritage management, and a shared concern regarding the challenges that current and future generations will have to deal with. All ICOMOS Committees and members are encouraged to make this declaration widely known.

Preface: The Statutes of ICOMOS of 2014 was adopted by the 18th General Assembly of ICOMOS, Florence, Italy, 12 Nov., 2014.

The ICOMOS Statutes was adopted by the Constituent Assembly of ICOMOS in Warsaw (Poland) on 22 June 1965 and amended by the 5th General Assembly (Moscow, USSR) on 22 May 1978, and the 18th General Assembly (Florence, Italy) on 12 November 2014.

Evolution of the Statutes, the Ethical Commitment Statement and the Rules of Procedure

Archives of the amendment and revision processes of the ICOMOS Statutes, the Ethical Commitment Statement and the Rules of Procedure – in the run up to the 18th General Assembly (Florence 2014), the Annual General Assembly (Istanbul 2016), the Extraordinary General Assembly on the occasion of the 19th General Assembly (Delhi 2017).

Extraordinary General Assembly
(on the occasion of the 19th General Assembly, Delhi, 2017)
As foreshadowed at the Annual General Assembly 2015 in Fukuoka, the ICOMOS Board was intending to call an Extraordinary General Assembly in conjunction with the forthcoming Annual General Assembly taking place in Istanbul in October 2016, for the purpose of making some amendments to the ICOMOS Statutes. The formal notice of meeting was sent in June 2016. Following comments by ICOMOS Committees, the Board decided in August 2016 to postpone this Extraordinary General Assembly, and it will now be held immediately prior to the 19th Triennial General Assembly (Delhi 2017).

Annual General Assembly, Istanbul, October 2016
The revised Statutes adopted in 2014 made the then current Rules of Procedure obsolete in many respects. Taking into account the resolution by the 2014 General Assembly, the Board is seeking to have an initial group of amended Rules of Procedure approved at the Annual General Assembly in Istanbul in October 2016, so that they can be in force for the next Triennial General Assembly in 2017. This first group includes the Rules of Procedure relating to General Assemblies, and those for bidding to host a General Assembly and for assessing the bids.
