Abstract

This paper addresses whether the U.S. should restrict imports of Chinese archaeological materials by analyzing the request within the framework of the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act (CPIA). Part II briefly describes China's current request and what it includes. Part III provides the CPIA analysis to determine whether China's current request meets U.S. statutory requirements. Part IV offers some avenues that China could pursue instead of broad U.S. import restrictions. Finally, Part V concludes that a bilateral agreement with China should be entered into, but not as currently submitted. It then offers ideas that would make the agreement workable.
