|Title||The Role of Legislation in an Architecture Conservation Strategy for Gaza, Palestine|
|Title in Arabic||دور التشريع في إستراتيجية الحفاظ على العمارة في غزة ، فلسطين|
Gaza used to have a reasonable number of built heritage that decreases day after day. The continual loss and neglect of historic buildings and areas in Gaza are due to many factors. Among the most important are the inadequacy of existing legislation and the inability of institutions to protect the built heritage. The aim of the research is to pave the way for the establishment of a legislative and administrative framework that would underpin a conservation strategy for Gaza, Palestine. The research starts by highlighting the different attitudes within the current conservation discourse. An analysis of the current Palestinian legislative and institutional systems is followed by an appraisal of the city itself and its built heritage. Two case studies of cities that are in some ways comparable to Gaza, the cities of Jeddah and Cairo, are analyzed. The study concludes an analysis of the deficits in legislation and implementation process behind the absence of serious conservation actions, and recommending comprehensive conservation legislation and an administrative framework capable of efficiently implementing conservation initiatives.
