PANEL 7.02

Restoration and preservation of Ethiopian Heritage : history, practices, ethics

Coordination:
Claire Bosc-Tiessé, université Paris 1, France.

Inviting restoration practitioners, scientific project managers as agents of national and international organizations that set the international standards of conservation-restoration, this panel aims to highlight the different approaches to restoration throughout the world and to question the operations lead in Ethiopia. This panel will thus be able :
- to put in an historical perspective the operations of restoration conducted on Ethiopian heritage in Ethiopia for at least a century in order to measure the evolution of projects and practices.
- to examine the potentials as well as the limits and legitimacy of the stakeholders and to ask what tools are or should be available to decision makers as much for deciding which operations to conduct and the methodology to follow, as to keep a memory of it.
- to consider the scientific project in which operations are conducted, what knowledge is needed and in return, what new knowledge these operations may bring.
Thus, this panel aims to open an epistemological and heuristic reflection on the practices in history and in the present time.
