Cultural Heritage Law

  • Elgar Research Reviews in Law

James A.R. Nafziger

This Research Review spans a broad range of international legal issues related to both tangible cultural material – such as archaeological and indigenous objects, fine art, shipwrecks, and cultural sites – and intangible heritage such as traditional knowledge and genetic information. Specific topics include, among others, issues of definition and attribution, on-site protection of objects and sites, illegal trafficking and repatriation of objects, and protection of intangible heritage. Special attention is paid to applicable provisions of UNESCO treaties and other international instruments and to pertinent rules of private international law.
