Abstract

The international directives resulting from the ratification of the UNESCO (2003) Convention on the Safeguarding of the Intangible Heritage have placed intangible heritage on the agenda. Local and regional initiatives to safeguard intangible heritage and new public policies in this area are emerging in Portugal. This project intends to give an account of these current movements, in their different scales, trying to follow the discussion of selection, negotiation and objectification processes that transform cultural aspects into “intangible heritage”. The main case study is the process of inscribing “fado” into the UNESCO’s intangible heritage representative list.
