Sorry for the lack of posts last week. I’ve been rushing to finish up a couple of articles for publication. The first, is a case note on Iran v. Berend which should appear in the next issue of the International Journal of Cultural Property. The second is a much longer article which is tentatively titled: Why US Federal Criminal Penalities for Dealing in Illicit Cultural Property are Ineffective, and a Pragmatic Approach. That should be published sometime next fall. I’ll try to post a copy of it on SSRN in the next few months.
In the links section at the left, I’ve added a link to the Museum Security Network, which is an outstanding service that sends daily emails on this topic. Also, I’ve included a link to Joanna Cobley’s Museumdetective site, which includes a lot of great information and podcasts.
