Art At War: Protecting Works Of Art And Cultural Heritage In Times Of Conflict
The impetus for having this topic is the war in Ukraine. It is against that troubling background that the session will examine and discuss the various ways in which law intersects with war and armed conflict. This includes the legal framework of war; the functions of relevant international organizations and the role of the legal profession.
The panel will consist of legal experts and experts from academia and the public sphere. The Panel will look at ways in which a country might protect its works of art and cultural heritage in times of conflict; consider national and international legal frameworks relevant to the protection of art and cultural heritage; and look at the challenges inherent in enforcing legal rights in and to disputed works of art and cultural objects.
