1. Introduction
In this chapter my motivation for choosing my subject, UNESCO, will we explained as well as my research question and the associated sub-questions, the process of making these questions will also be explained.

Finding a topic was not a difficult task, but formulating your research question and sub-question was easier said than done, I think, formulating a research question was the most difficult task of the whole assignment. When you finally got a research question, only then you could start writing this paper.

1.1. Motivation
Finding a topic was the first step of this assignment. After some time I had finally found my topic, I decided to do my paper about UNESCO, because I was curious about this organization. I go a lot on holiday, and every time I visit an amazing site, which is on the world heritage list such as Prague, Salzburg and the Kremlin in Moscow, then I really want to find out, why we have an organization such as UNESCO and why do we need UNESCO? By writing this paper and by looking for information, hopefully I will get a lot of my questions answered.

1.2. Research Question
Formulating a research question was a difficult task, especially for me. While I was doing some research on the internet, I formulated my research question, some time later I changed my research question until I found it a perfect research question. My ultimate research questions is: ‘Why do we have a world heritage list of UNESCO and does Europe profit from it?’

1.3. Sub Questions
In order to answer my research question I have formulated three sub questions.

For the start of my research I want to know, what the world heritage list is and what is meant by; “UNESCO”?. Therefore, my first sub-question is: “What is the World
