Governance of Cultural Property: Preservation and Recovery, Basel, Switzerland, 29-30 September 2009

Laws, Policies and Guidelines
Events and Conferences

Concerned with the growing importance of governance issues in the area of cultural property management, the Basel Institute on Governance is broaching relevant topics at its forthcoming international conference.

Academics and practitioners from different fields covered interconnected issues ranging from the roles and responsibilities of museums, cultural property protection in conflict situations, the grey areas of the art business and the thin line between legality and misdemeanour, outright theft and money-laundering in the cultural assets trade, (inter)national legal means and voluntary initiatives aiming at the prevention of such unlawful acts and, finally, mechanisms of recovering stolen artefacts and the negotiations surrounding their potential repatriation.

The conference flyer is available here.
