Contested Cultural objects and the Role of Provenance Research

The 2022 Centre for Global Heritage and Development summer school will focus on contested cultural objects and the role of provenance research (ownership history).

General information

This year, our summer school will focus on contested cultural objects and the role of provenance research (ownership history). What are the standards for heritage protection and ownership of cultural objects that were (or might have been) looted, recently or in the past? Moreover, what is the role of law enforcement in these matters? In an interdisciplinary setting, with scholars and professionals from the fields of law, heritage, law enforcement and the art market, we will look at the standards and mechanisms that are in place to prevent cultural objects from being acquired, and/or traded unlawfully.  The programme is curated by our experts Dr. Evelien Campfens (Leiden University) and Dr. Naomi Oosterman (Erasmus University Rotterdam)
