Conference: "Cross-border movement of cultural goods" May 19, 2012 in Athens

The Hellenic Society for Law and Archaeology and the Institut fur Kunst und recht are putting together a conference at the Acropolis Museum in Athens in a few week on May 19th 2012. The conference aims:

  • to examine the need of reforming the existing legal framework on international, European and national level and to offer proposals to take a closer look at: 
  • the legal trends and the challenges they create for member states
  • the strengths and deficiencies of the two major international conventions as well as the regulations of European and national law  
  • to discuss the legal reforms currently underway in European Law 
  • to present and examine case studies from Greece, Switzerland, Germany, Austria 
  • to network and exchange ideas with leading professionals
It looks to be a promising event, and what a setting for a law and archaeology conference. I note with interest that there appears to be efforts to revisit the 1995 UNIDROIT and the 1970 UNESCO Conventions soon.
