Expert Meeting 2009 – Safeguarding the Netherlands Antilles Cultural Heritage after the Constitutional Changes

Nota di maneho

As the Netherlands Antilles will no longer be and new nations are being built, NAAM is concerned with the implications these constitutional changes will have on the management of our shared Cultural Resources in general and in particular the Cultural Heritage of the communities of Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Maarten.

NAAM took the initiative to organize an expert meeting on Friday, March 20, 2009 prior to her General Board Meeting, to discuss these issues of concern.

We are pleased to present you herewith the report of this meeting. It includes the four main papers. The meeting concluded with a number of resolutions. These are presented in the final chapter of this report.

We hope that this report will provide you with the needed insights to guarantee the best cultural resource management of our shared heritage.
