On 25 September 2008 the United States Senate voted to give its advice and consent to ratification of the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict.

The United States now joins 121 other nations in becoming a party to this treaty which establishes the principles for protecting cultural sites, monuments and collections during both armed conflict and military occupation. 

A Statement from the Archaeological Institute of America, the Lawyers’ Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation, and the U.S. Committee for the Blue Shield urging Senate ratification, joined by twelve other cultural preservation organizations, is available here and at: http://www.culturalheritagelaw.org/advocacy.
