During the past few years, the European Union (EU) has strengthened its cultural diplomacy policies to respond to various global challenges and crises within, at, and beyond its borders. The European Commission has identified heritage as one of the focus areas of EU cultural diplomacy. Heritage is a challenging political tool because it can be used for strengthening unity and inclusion, but it may also simultaneously and unintentionally cause exclusion and feelings of non-belonging and create boundaries and hierarchical power relations between people. To understand the uses of heritage in EU cultural diplomacy and the implications this heritage diplomacy may have, HERIDI will scrutinize currently developing EU foreign policy and initiatives for external cultural relations that deal with cultural heritage. HERIDI provides critical analysis and results that benefit scholarship as well as policymakers, educators, and practitioners of cultural diplomacy.
