Julio S.

International Expert in Culture and Development

Doctoral DegreeISCTE-University Institute of Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal


I am an international expert in culture and development with a focus on intangible cultural heritage (ICH). My vision and practice of ICH is influenced by a multidisciplinary approach built on almost fifteen years of a diverse career in governments and international organizations. Former project officer at UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage Section, I have strong expertise in implementing the 2003 Convention and applying its principles to capacity-building, research and visibility activities. I have a consolidated experience in designing and managing community-based safeguarding projects, and particularly advocate to mainstream the ICH potential to generate economic activities and innovation in favour of communities’ quality of life and social cohesion.
