Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines current conservation strategies in Syria today and makes the case for a multidisciplinary approach in dealing with what is now becoming an "old problem". One of the hoped-for outcomes of the programmes outlined in the chapter is to present the Directorate General for Antiquities and Museums (DGAM) with a new strategic approach which aims at improving the integrated management of the mosaic corpus in Syria as well as the sites in which they are discovered. In conclusion it is hoped that through outlining existing problems and through the application of a multidisciplinary approach, one which includes projects such as those outlined in the chapter and stakeholder participation as an integral part of its methodology, one can finally begin to see the change in how cultural heritage management in general and mosaic preservation in particular are being dealt with in Syria.
