The Summer School 2021 of the LDE Centre for Global Heritage and Development titled Cross-Border Transfer of Cultural Objects: The Law, Challenges, and Practice will take place from 23-26 August. The summer school will take place online and will focus on heritage protection and the cross-border transfer of cultural objects. Registrations for this summer school are now open.
The Centre for Global Heritage and Development's summer school 2021 will focus on heritage protection and the cross-border transfer of cultural objects. Given the increase of legislation in this field, which standards are exactly in place to prevent illicit trade? How to ensure that the provenance of an object is lawful, and what are the standards for title issues regarding cultural objects looted in the past? Besides, what is the role of law enforcement?
In an interdisciplinary setting, with scholars and professionals from the fields of law, heritage protection, museum studies, and the art market, we will look at the standards and mechanisms that are in place to prevent that cultural objects are looted, acquired, or traded unlawfully. The programme is curated by our experts Evelien Campfens (Leiden University) and Naomi Oosterman (Erasmus University Rotterdam).
