This seminar was attended by 55 participants (anthropologists, social scientists, experts in cultural heritage, public administrators, and organisations such as UNESCO) from 17 ASEM countries. It introduced a sociological and anthropological approach to the current debates surrounding cultural heritage and tourism with the following question: "How can the understanding of man as a cultural vector, with its natural inclinations towards tourism, contribute to a better management of the cultural heritage and the tourism industry?"

Six workshops were held to discuss the question. The topics were:

- Solidarity tourism: An idea and its reality

- Images of tourism

- Urban tourism and urbanism

- Influence of tourism on local lifestyle

- From traditional handicraft to industrialised souvenirs

- Cultural heritage and its representation
