Summary/Abstract: The article follows the political, ideological and economic aspects of the processes of selection, recognition and construction of cultural heritage. The analysis reflects the multi-layered relations between the local communities and institutions, the political elites on a central level, and the experts in building policies for the protection of the past. It criticizes the lack of strategies and sustainable funding schemes; the latter resulting in establishing a Cultural Heritage Forum, whose aims and tasks are a subject of discussion in the text.
