30th November 2015
Time: 18:00-19:00 (Registration from 17:15)
Venue: British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Grotius Library, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5JP
This is the second lecture in an annual series to honour the memory of Harry Weinrebe, a philanthropist and the founder of the Dorset Foundation. The series is focused on the protection of international peace and justice, values that were at heart of Mr Weinrebe's humanitarian activities.
The destruction and misappropriation of cultural property and its illicit traffic and sale, in particular by powerful non-state groups, have come increasingly to be viewed by states and international bodies from the perspective of the maintenance of international peace and security. In his Harry Weinrebe Memorial Lecture, Roger O'Keefe examines recent and potential international legal developments in this direction and reflects on the promise and pitfalls of such an approach for the preservation of humanity's cultural heritage.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception from 19:00.
- Professor Roger O'Keefe, Professor of Public International Law, University College London
- Kristin Hausler, Dorset Senior Research Fellow in Public International Law, BIICL
This event is convened by Kristin Hausler, Dorset Senior Research Fellow in Public International Law.
