Event Details

This event will explore the challenges associated with the claims for the restitution of cultural heritage. Drawing from claims concerned with Nazi-looted art, the discussion will seek to identify some lessons learnt, which may be relevant to the current debate surrounding colonial-looted objects. The panel will also address some of the ongoing challenges associated with restitution claims, including provenance research but also the legal barriers faced by some claimants.
