Presented by International Coalition of Historic Site Museums of Conscience at the Conference "Memorialization and Democracy: State Policy and Civic Action"


This publication is based on the international conference Memorialization and Democracy: State Policy and Civic Action held on June 20-22, 2007 in Santiago, Chile. The conference brought together policy-makers and practitioners in human rights, democracy building, historic preservation, education, tourism, and urban planning to develop frameworks that support Sites of Conscience. Participants identified policies for developing Sites of Conscience as new spaces for citizen engagement and as integral parts of any democratic society.
