Witnesses to history: a compendium of documents and writings on the return of cultural objects
The year 2008 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the establishment of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for Promoting the Return of Cultural Property to its Countries of Origin or its Restitution in Case of Illicit Appropriation.
The last ten years have seen renewed interest in the Committee, and a desire to intensify and improve its activities.
This renewed interest is seen in the holding of a meeting in Athens in March 2008 of an International Conference on the Return of Cultural Objects to their Countries of Origin at the invitation of the Greek Directorate of Antiquities. The papers of that conference are in press.
