Falling through the cracks of UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Steve McCarty
The author contrasts Japan's unsurpassed cultural preservation with the destruction of irreplaceable treasures of humanity in Afghanistan and Central Asia, showing the limitations of UNESCO and what factors lead to designation or not of World Heritage Sites. This short podcast concludes by theorizing how discrimination against women originated, which again UNESCO was not in a strong enough position to counteract in the case of a large World Heritage Site in Japan.
