Time: 12.00 - 14.00 (UK time)
This Course will offer an introduction to cultural heritage as an international legal concept. It will include discussions of the key threats to cultural heritage at present, including trafficking, armed conflicts, and development. In doing so, it will also cover international instruments that have been adopted over the past decades to protect cultural heritage. Finally, the course will conclude with a special session focused on restitution matters, considering past return processes and what can be learnt from them.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand:
- What is 'cultural heritage' under international law?
- How does international law protect cultural heritage?
- What is the role of States and non-state actors in protecting cultural heritage?
- How has the conceptualization of cultural heritage changed overtime?
