Transnational World Heritage, (meta)governance and implications for tourism: An Italian case

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Transnational World Heritage sites foster international cooperation, with implications for tourism systems within and across State Parties. This work analyses the metagovernance of the Italian portion of the Prehistoric Pile Dwellings, a serial transboundary World Heritage site. The results indicate that there are specific metagovernance failures due to issues in the Italian system, notably the overly hierarchical structure for heritage policy. The clash between governance modes results in an ineffective decision-making structure laden with ‘red tape’. The paper highlights the need to adhere to more networked modes of governance in order to improve and increase the efficiency of the Italian site management as well as the complicated process of transnational World Heritage metagovernance and its application to national governance structures.
