Contents Notes Between Arbitration and Engineering: Concepts and Contingencies in the Shaping of Heritage Regimes -- Singularity and Micro Regional Strategies in Intangible Cultural Heritage -- Beyond Tradition: Cultural Mediation in the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage -- Brief Evaluation of Items on Intangible Cultural Heritage -- Challenges for Anthropological Research on Intangible Cultural Heritage -- New Directions in the Study of Cultural Transmission -- Thoughts on Intangibility and Transmission -- Intangible Cultural Heritage Policy in Japan -- Anthropology of Intangible Cultural Heritage and Migration: an Uncharted Field -- General Discussion Identifying Key Issues. A decade after the approval of the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH), the concept has gained wide acceptance at the local, national and international levels. Communities are recognizing and celebrating their Intangible Heritage; governments are devoting important efforts to the construction of national inventories; and anthropologists and professionals from different disciplines are forming a new field of study. The ten chapters of this book include the peer-reviewed papers of the First Planning Meeting of the International Social Science Council's Commission on Research on ICH, which was held at the Centro Regional de Investigaciones Multidisciplinarias (UNAM) in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 2012. The papers are based on fieldwork and direct involvement in assessing and reconceptualizing the outcomes of the UNESCO Convention. The report in Appendix 1 highlights the main points raised during the sessions.
