Drawing on  records from Norwegian governmental archives, Hølleland and Phelps explore the intrastate tensions of the ratification process (1972-1976), the first years as an observing state party (1977-1982) and Norway’s first tenure on the World Heritage Committee (1983-89).

Glimpses from the World Heritage committee

The period provides important glimpses into the early politicking of the World Heritage Committee and the rise of Norway as a spokesperson for scientific-professional decision-making and conservation good power.
