The 40th session of the World Heritage Committee will be held from 10 to 20 July 2016 in Istanbul (Turkey). This issue will be dedicated to the country’s fifteen fascinating World Heritage sites, from the Historic Areas of Istanbul to Pergamon with its acropolis. Other sites include the Archaeological Site of Troy and the mausoleum of Nemrut Dağ, but also mixed sites in spectacular landscapes such as Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia, with its rock-hewn sanctuaries, and Hierapolis-Pamukkale with its ruins of baths, temples and Hellenistic monuments. The regulatory framework for managing World Heritage sites in Turkey, partnerships for the conservation of sites, strategies for managing tourism and sites for potential inscription on the World Heritage List will be presented. There will also be a message from UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova, as well as an interview with Her Excellency Ambassador Ms Lale Ülker, Chair of the World Heritage Committee, and messages from Kadir Topbaş, Mayor of Istanbul, and Mahir Ünal, Minister of Culture and Tourism.
