Experienced policy-maker, using her research for change
I have worked on policy making and on linking research and practice within a variety of international organisations and governments.
I was one of 6 experts invited to give a keynote speech at this conference and presented the results and case studies on heritage regeneration from my 2011 book Evaluating the Socio-Economic Impacts of Selected Regenerated Heritage Sites in Europe.
In 2012, the World Bank also invited me to use my 2011 book to assist the governments of India and Bhutan in protecting their heritage and using it for regeneration. The output of this project was a World Bank Guidance Note (unpublished) that I co-wrote with Eduardo Rojas, entitled ‘Heritage Management and Development for Social Inclusion and Economic Development’.
