Heritage is a political concept whose meaning is formed by institutions of the nation-state and academia. The nation-state bases its legitimacy on the concept of collective history, where heritage serves as a place of memory that connects such a narrative. The aforementioned process is realized through political, i.e. state institutions in the form of institutions dealing with the protection of heritage, educational institutions, museums and the like, as well as academic institutions of professions related to the protection of heritage such as art history, ethnology and cultural anthropology. At the transnational level, the process takes place through international institutions dedicated to heritage protection such as UNESCO. This paper explores and provides a basic overview of mechanisms by which heritage narratives are constructed and provides analysis of national and international institutions through which this mechanism takes place.
