Cultural Heritage without Borders Kosovo
Kosovo

"The foundation Cultural Heritage without Borders (CHwB) is an independent Swedish non-governmental organisation dedicated to rescuing and preserving tangible and intangible cultural heritage affected by conflict, neglect or human and natural disasters. We see our work as a vital contribution to building democracy and supporting human rights.


CHwB is neutral when it comes to conflicting parties, but not to the rights of all people to cultural heritage – now and in the future. CHwB works with cultural heritage as an active force in reconciliation, peace building and social and economic development by creating capacity, awareness and opportunities for preserving and rescuing cultural heritage in societies affected by conflict, neglect or human and natural disasters. CHwB is committed to equality, non-discrimination, participation, accountability and transparency.


Cultural Heritage without Borders was founded in 1995 as an independent Swedish non-governmental organisation to work in the spirit of the 1954 Hague Convention for the protection of cultural property in the event of armed conflicts, natural catastrophes, neglect, poverty or political and social conflicts."
