This study by Vicky Kämpfe is addressed to researchers, practitioners and teachers who engage with questions and matters related to intangible cultural heritage. The author takes the ambiguous term and concept of intangible cultural heritage as the starting point for her reflections. In doing so, she aims to provide a theoretical foundation for the objectives of raising awareness of the diverse forms and expressions of cultural heritage, safeguarding and communicating them as living heritage, and researching and continuing to develop them in a contemporary way. The legal framework for the UNESCO World Heritage concept is provided by the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005), the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (2003), and the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (1972).
