This interdisciplinary advanced seminar, organized by Amy Strecker and Joseph Powderly, brings together many of the leading voices in international cultural heritage law and heritage studies. Over the course of three days (30 April – 2 May), the symposium will tackle some of the most pressing issues in the sphere of international cultural heritage law. Day 1 will begin with a keynote address by Prof. Francesco Francioni entitled “Is International Law Ready for the Recognition of a General Obligation to Prevent and Avoid Destruction of Cultural Heritage?”. 

We are grateful to have received support from the Leiden Global Interactions fund, as well as the LDE Centre for Global Heritage and Development for the meeting.
