The Stanford Conference on Heritage and Human Rights brings together heritage practitioners, human rights scholars and archaeologists in order to explore competing claims on the domain of heritage as an emergent sphere of rights.

Competing claims to rights and the overburdening of heritage marks a critical space for discussing the future of heritage practice as it is currently being enacted.

Understanding what claiming the right to 'a past' entails politically, socially, and culturally, offers an essential starting point for critically evaluating the future of heritage practice.
