Cross-Border Restitution of Looted Art
On 3 December 2019, the JURI Committee will host a public hearing on "Cross-border restitution claims of works of art and cultural goods looted in armed conflicts and wars". The event is organized as a follow-up to the European Parliament resolution of 17 January 2019 on cross-border restitution claims of works of art and cultural goods looted in armed conflicts and wars (2017/2023 (INI)).
Leading experts from a variety of national contexts from within and beyond Europe will discuss various aspects of restitution of cultural property with the aim to look at ways to ensure fair and just solutions for the return of looted art. They will provide opinions on the future actions required to ensure standard processes for making and pursuing claims, due diligence standards, and shared definitions of what constitutes loss both between and even within countries. Members will have the opportunity to ask questions to renowned experts in the area.
3 December 2019, 9am-12.30pm
The hearing is open to the public (free of charge, registration required).
