The first edition of this Commentary was published in 2000 to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the UNESCO Convention. Since then, the Convention has been ratified by many more States, including the United Kingdom, Japan and Switzerland, and the Convention is acquiring greater significance than at any other point in its history. This article by article analysis is written by an acknowledged expert in heritage law and management. The book includes practical information on the implementation of the Convention, together with a series of appendices.

Art and Cultural Heritage is appropriately, but not solely, about national and international law respecting cultural heritage. It is a bubbling cauldron of law mixed with ethics, philosophy, politics and working principles looking at how cultural heritage law, policy and practice should be sculpted from the past as the present becomes the future. Art and cultural heritage are two pillars on which a society builds its identity, its values, its sense of community and the individual. The authors explore these demanding concerns, untangle basic values, and look critically at the conflicts and contradictions in existing art and cultural heritage law and policy in its diverse sectors. The rich and provocative contributions collectively provide a reasoned discussion of the issues from a multiplicity of views to permit the reader to understand the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of the cultural heritage debate.

Cultural Property and Contested Ownership

The trafficking of artefacts and the quest for restitution

Against the backdrop of international conventions and their implementation, Cultural Property and Contested Ownership explores how highly-valued cultural goods are traded and negotiated among diverging parties and their interests. Cultural artefacts, such as those kept and trafficked between art dealers, private collectors and museums, have become increasingly localized in a ‘Bermuda triangle’ of colonialism, looting and the black market, with their re-emergence resulting in disputes of ownership and claims for return. This interdisciplinary volume provides the first book-length investigation of the changing behaviours resulting from the effect of the 1970 UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property. The collection considers the impact of the Convention on the way antiquity dealers, museums and auction houses, as well as nation states and local communities, address issues of provenance, contested ownership, and the trafficking of cultural property. The book contains a range of contributions from anthropologists, lawyers, historians and archaeologists. Individual cases are examined from a bottom-up perspective and assessed from the viewpoint of international law in the Epilogue. Each section is contextualised by an introductory chapter from the editors.

Indigenous Peoples' Cultural Property Claims

Repatriation and Beyond

This book analyses the legal aspects of international claims by indigenous peoples for the repatriation of their cultural property, and explores what legal norms and normative orders would be appropriate for resolving these claims. To establish context, the book first provides insights into the exceptional legislative responses to the cultural property claims of Native American tribes in the United States and looks at the possible relevance of this national law on the international level. It then shifts to the multinational setting by using the method of legal pluralism and takes into consideration international human rights law, international cultural heritage law, the applicable national laws in the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland, transnational law such as museum codes, and decision-making in extra-legal procedures. In the process, the book reveals the limits of the law in dealing with the growing imperative of human rights in the field, and concludes with three basic insights that are of key relevance for improving the law and decision-making with regard to indigenous peoples’ cultural property.​

Volume 3 does particular justice to the international aspect of cultural goods protection and art restitution law. Firstly, the civil law claims system, possible means of defense against unjust art restitution claims and counterclaims of parties legally obliged to restitution are addressed. The second core issue of this work involves international cultural goods civil procedural law and the question of which formal and procedural particularities exist in regard to art restitution law suits. The examination also focuses on international cultural goods private law and the question significant to daily practice, namely: which national civil law system applies in the event of art restitution procedures?

Was man für Geld nicht kaufen kann

Die moralischen Grenzen des Marktes

Darf ein Staat Söldner verpflichten, um Kriege zu führen? Ist es moralisch vertretbar, Leute dafür zu bezahlen, dass sie Organe spenden? Dürfen Unternehmen gegen Geld das Recht erwerben, die Luft zu verpesten? Fast alles scheint heute käuflich zu sein. Wollten wir das so? Und was können wir dagegen tun? Mit Verve und anhand prägnanter Beispiele widmet sich Michael J. Sandel dieser wichtigen ethischen Frage. Die Regeln des Marktes haben fast alle Lebensbereiche infiltriert, auch jene, die eigentlich jenseits von Konsum und Mehrwert liegen sollten: Medizin, Erziehung, Politik, Recht und Gesetz, Kunst, Sport, sogar Familie und Partnerschaft. Ohne es zu merken, haben wir uns von einer Marktwirtschaft in eine Marktgesellschaft gewandelt. Ist da nicht etwas grundlegend schief gelaufen? Mit Verve und anhand prägnanter Beispiele wirft Michael Sandel eine der wichtigsten ethischen Fragen unserer Zeit auf: Wie können wir den Markt daran hindern, Felder zu beherrschen, in denen er nichts zu suchen hat? Wo liegen seine moralischen Grenzen? Und wie können wir zivilisatorische Errungenschaften bewahren, für die sich der Markt nicht interessiert und die man für kein Geld der Welt kaufen kann?

Internationaler Kulturgüterschutz nach der UNIDROIT-Konvention

Due to their uniqueness cultural assets require a particular protection which must not only be implemented through financial and actual resources but also through the legal process. This work presents the possibility of legal protection of cultural assets using the UNIDROIT Convention on stolen or unlawfully executed cultural assets of 24.06.1995. The passing of this Convention was a milestone on the route to solving the problems of illegal trade in cultural assets. The work is divided into three main areas. First of all there is an overview of the legal framework of cultural asset protection from international treaties and European legal acts. This is followed by an individual analysis of the regulations of the UNIDROIT Convention and then by a comparison of the convention and national legal regulations in selected European countries and a voluntary code of practice in which there is a detailed section on cultural asset protection in Germany. Therefore this work shows that an effective cultural asset protection requires the cooperation of states and cultural institutions which must be supported through international regulations and national legislation. The ratification of the UNIDROIT Convention has also proven to be extremely desirable especially as the review possibilities of the Convention text relating to the establishment of an international register of stolen cultural assets and a general obligatory registration for thefts of significant cultural assets have been discussed.

Das Geschäft mit geraubten Kulturgütern boomt. Im Schatten der politischen Erschütterungen im Nahen Osten und in Nordafrika kommt es zu beispiellosen Plünderungen antiker Stätten. Gleichzeitig werden Kunstgegenstände als Geldanlage international immer gefragter. Auch Terrorgruppen wie der IS finanzieren sich wohl durch geraubte Kulturgüter. Weltweit wird – so vermuten es Strafverfolger – nur mit Drogen und Waffen mehr illegales Geld gemacht. Günther Wessel hat sich in diesen 'diskreten Markt' hineinbegeben.

Die geheime Macht des Islamischen Staates

Der "Islamische Staat“ beruht auf zwei Pfeilern: auf seinem Territorium und auf einer digitalen Infrastruktur, mit der er hocheffizient organisiert wird. Abdel Bari Atwan, der das IS-Gebiet bereist und zahllose Interviews mit Jihadisten geführt hat, bietet in seinem Buch erstmals Einblicke in die digitalen Institutionen und Kommandostrukturen des IS und stellt dessen führende Köpfe vor. Viele Computerspiele faszinieren durch die Verbindung von mittelalterlichem Ambiente und Hightech. Genau hier liegt für viele Jihadisten auch die Faszination des IS, der eine "mittelalterliche“ Ordnung mit Hilfe des Internets aufrechterhält. Das Steuersystem orientiert sich am Koran, wird aber digital organisiert. Das Finanzwesen beruht auf dem Zinsverbot, verwaltet aber den Staatshaushalt und die Einnahmen aus Ölexport, Antiquitätenhandel und Entführung mit elektronischen Krypto-Währungen. Das Bildungswesen sorgt für Koranlektüre, aber auch für digital kompetenten Nachwuchs – auch weiblichen. Der Propagandaapparat setzt auf die Inszenierung von Gewalt und beschäftigt dafür eine ganze Armee von Fotografen, Video-Filmern und Spiele-Entwicklern. Atwan beschreibt die Rolle des Darknet und erklärt, warum die Cyber-Jihadisten dem elektronischen "Counter-Jihad“ immer eine Nasenlänge voraus sein werden. Sein alarmierender Bericht sollte allen zu denken geben, die den IS mit militärischen Mitteln besiegen wollen.
