Dr Ulrike Guerin
Ulrike Guerin is in charge of the underwater cultural heritage programme at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. As such she advises governments, organizes international meetings of States and oversees UNESCO operational projects. The latter range from trainings and exhibitions to emergency assistance missions going underwater. She has been closely involved in setting up UNESCO’s new emergency assistance expert-body. This 12-expert Advisory Body just returned from helping States in three recent cases of unscientific interventions on submerged heritage sites. She is a lawyer by training.
