Abstract:
The thesis combines cultural heritage management and museology as 'western constructs' in their Moroccan context, which has deeply shaped by French colonialism. and still remains captive of that legacy. The research explores all aspect of the concept of sustainable development and investigates the accession and the mainstreaming of culture and cultural heritage into the World Bank development portfolio with particular emphasis on the Fa Medina Rehabilitation Programme as it embodies the World Bank's attempts to consolidate cultural heritage as part of sustainable development. Furthermore, the research study also attempts to historically and aesthetically 'ground' the museum concept in non-western environment by focusing on the pertinent questions of representation, collection care, professionalism and commodification. And critically looks at the suitability of the ecomuseum model as an alternative to orthodox museology.
