Protection of heritage in Tunisia: mismanagement and legislative weakness

This policy brief addresses protection of heritage; a national sovereign wealth that must be protected and secured for current and future generations. The sustainable protection of heritage does not only depend on the type of heritage (tangible, intangible, natural, etc.) but also specific the threats it faces. Heritage is a unique resource and its disappearance is irreversible as restoration to its original state is, in most cases, almost impossible. Therefore, is it necessary to adopt more serious policies and laws to manage these assets?
