Cultural Heritage

Cultural heritage is a means to promote international peace and security, as well as a vector to strengthen international relations. It is therefore important to understand how it is protected under international law, whether as a human right or as cultural property under international humanitarian law. Over the past few years, the destruction of cultural heritage has drawn particular attention to this expanding field of international law.

BIICL is raising awareness about the international rules protecting cultural heritage, providing training and a discussion forum to relevant stakeholders, as well as leading research into the current gaps in cultural heritage law.
