The 2018 inscriptions on the World Heritage List have just been announced by the World Heritage Evaluation Panel. Through the authority of the World Heritage Convention, this panel reviews the nomination dossiers of and recommends World Heritage Sites to the World Heritage Committee. Long-standing policy dictates that the composition of this panel remains anonymous until after new inscriptions are announced. This year, Douglas Comer, Chair and President of US/ICOMOS, was a panel member. The panel consists of approximately thirty (30) invited ICOMOS members from around the world. They represent an extraordinary and diverse mixture of expertise and experience.
