Interview with Claudia Kraan. Cultural-historical landscapes on Bonaire: flexible and sustainable protection of heritage

As the least populated of the ‘Benedenwindse Eilanden’, Bonaire still has many special landscapes. There, archaeologist Claudia Kraan is involved in drawing up policy documents in the context of the implementation of the Malta Convention for the Protection of the Archaeological Heritage. Part of this is a nomination file of some cultural-historical landscapes on Bonaire, based on the existing archaeological sites. Claudia is formally employed by the National Archaeological Anthropological Memory Management (NAAM), a nonprofit organization that is committed to the conservation, identification and research of the material and intangible heritage of Curaçao and Bonaire in a Caribbean perspective. In this interview Claudia Kraan gives us an insight in her work and the opportunities and barriers she sees in the protection of heritage of Bonaire.
