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.

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?

​The art world has been discovered by criminals as an effective way for money laundering and other clandestine activities on an international level. Unfortunately, in most countries investigators, prosecutors, judges, and regulatory agencies are not equipped to accurately detect, investigate and prosecute this type of criminal activity. Also, regulation and international laws and treaties involving the art world have many loopholes that can potentially lead to the laundering of large sums of money. This book provides a bird’s eye view of novel ways in which money laundering happens through illegal activities involving art. It can serve as a guide for law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, and others involved in efforts to curb money laundering and financing of terrorism, revealing why somehow new techniques used by criminals have been neglected by law enforcement in most countries. Drawing from his own experience with the matter in both Brazil and in the United States, the author makes a case for broader institutional and regulatory improvement, extending beyond mere regulation of the art market.

The international practice of the past forty years shows the proliferation of a great variety of disputes concerning tangible cultural heritage. These mostly consist of inter-State and private claims about artworks stolen or illegally exported, and controversies regarding the protection of monuments and cultural spaces, not only from war-like situations, but also from non-violent processes, such as the realisation of investment projects. This book discusses whether an improvement in the manner in which these disputes are dealt with may enhance the international protection of cultural heritage.

Das Buch erortert die privat- und kollisionsrechtlichen Folgen der Verletzung von in- und auslandischen Kulturguterschutznormen. Vertieft wird insbesondere die Problematik der schwebenden Unwirksamkeit oder Nichtigkeit von Rechtsgeschaften. Gerade durch den Beitritt der Bundesrepublik Deutschland zum UNESCO-Kulturgutubereinkommen erlangt das Thema grosse Aktualitat. Vor diesem Hintergrund werden die konkreten Auswirkungen thematisiert, die das Ausfuhrungsgesetz vom 18. Mai 2007 mit sich bringt. Dies sind im besonderen die Erweiterung der Ruckgabeanspruche sowie die Einfuhrung eines Importverbots."

The 2001 UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage represents a major step forward in the field of international law. New archaeological rules as well as a comprehensive co-operation system among the States concerned are set up by the new Convention. Despite the negative attitude assumed by few States at the moment of voting for the text of the Convention, this new international instrument is welcome by the great majority of States. This volume focuses on the main aspects of the Convention. It is divided in two parts, to describe the situation before and after the adoption (and the forthcoming into force) of the Convention. In the first part the contradictions resulting from the regime established under the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea are analysed together with the undesirable results of the application of the rules of admiralty (law of salvage and law of finds) to the underwater cultural heritage. In the second part the negotiation process is described, both in its general aspects (the myths surrounding the draft) and in its specific results (the drafting of each single provision).
