Heritage reporting in the public sector
What is it about?
We analyse the requirements for heritage reporting in the public sector in major countries and compare it to that in Australia. Existing reporting requirements are based o information and efficiency (New Public Management perspectives). We ask what would heritage reporting look like if it focused on balancing interests and quality (New Public Governance perspectives). We base a new framework for reporting heritage on the five UNESCO dimensions and their guidelines.
Why is it important?
Heritage assets are important in the public sector and to maintain our historical and cultural past. We seek to address past concerns by showing a new perspective for heritage reporting.
