Confronting Complexity in the Preservation of Cultural Property: Monuments, Archives, and History

  • 30 Mar 2012
  • 2:15 PM - 3:45 PM
  • ASIL Annual Meeting, Washington, DC
This panel will address the role of international law in protecting monuments, archives and other cultural property. Recent events in Egypt and Libya as well as new attacks on cemeteries in Lithuania and Ukraine spell a growing threat to our common cultural heritage. The speakers will discuss various responses - for example, in some instances sanctions or re-designation by UNESCO have been necessary to stop destruction of architectural monuments, while elsewhere a joint committee effort has sufficed to protect burial grounds; whereas agreements to digitize archival materials may be satisfactory, in other circumstances only an outright return and reburial of artifacts will satisfy the wronged side. 


CLE credits will be available!
