A Didactic Case Study of Jarash Archaeological Site, Jordan: Stakeholders and Heritage Values in Site Management, based on the archaeological site of Jarash, Jordan, is designed to help heritage professionals recognize the importance of stakeholders and their values to effective site management, and to teach them skills for identifying stakeholders, eliciting their values and interests, and integrating these into management decision-making.

Volume one of the two-part Case Study focuses on Jarash’s history, archeology, configuration, and management context, offering four activities for engaging stakeholders in order to understand the site’s value and guide decisions on several critical issues in the site’s current management. It was designed as a teaching tool for use in academic programs, short courses, and workshops in heritage conservation, management, and planning. It is also relevant to educational and training programs in urban and regional planning, development studies, and dispute resolution.

Teaching Materials, volume two of the two-part Case Study, contains teaching guides, worksheets, and sample answers, to assist instructors in implementing the activities. It also includes suggested programs for using the Case Study within a three-day training workshop, and a semester-long academic course.
