CULTURE UNDER THREAT

The future of the 1954 Hague Convention

May 15-21, 2014

at the American University of Rome (AUR)

 

A joint meeting of the American University of Rome, Blue Shield, World Archaeological Congress, and Newcastle University

 

2014 marks the 60th anniversary of the 1954 Hague Convention on the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict and its 1st Protocol and also the 15th anniversary of its 2nd Protocol. Sadly, almost every part of the world has seen armed conflict since 1954 and cultural property has been damaged in all of these conflicts through collateral destruction, military insensitivities, and extensive looting.
