The Legal Reform in Cultural Heritage project will strengthen the authority of cultural sites to better oversee operations and control the integrity of these sites. From a strategic viewpoint, the project aims to present a new legal framework that will empower site administration to look after operations more efficiently. AADF is providing the necessary legal assistance to finalize the law and pass Parliament by 2015.
This project was initiated to provide an independent management of Butrint National Park as a stand-alone site. The new law combines the advantages of running the site as a private enterprise, and at the same time maintaining its public interest intact. The model introduced through the legal reform will make the Park institutionally and financially independent, and thus help overcome its current struggles.
