Abstract [en]

In this keynote adress I discuss the case of The Hanseatic town of Visby, a small town in the island of Gotland, in the middle of Baltic Sea, which in 1995 was designated as Sweden’s sixth and the world’s 470th world heritage site. Using the findings from my earlier research project “Heritage Politics” as a starting point, I reflect over consequences of World Heritage production and address issues both at a local and specific level, and at a more global and abstract level, with the intention to show that the impact of World Heritage production both locally and at large, depend on how these levels become interconnected within the framework of the UNESCO World Heritage program.
