Abstract

This research explores the implementation of the World Heritage Convention in the Pacific, with a focus on Solomon Islands. Utilising a socio-legal approach, it analyses the Convention regime to reveal challenges and opportunities associated with the recognition and protection of Pacific Island World Heritage. The inscription of East Rennell in Solomon Islands on the World Heritage List is assessed, and the protection of that site under customary and State legal systems is critically analysed. From this, options for improving the legal protection of World Heritage in Solomon Islands and other Pacific Island States are identified.
