This chapter attempts to elucidate the up-to-date blur rapport between the main legal regimes for protecting cultural property on the battlefield, taking the Ibero-American scenario as a sample.
The first two parts present very succinctly how the 20th Century paved the path for cultural heritage norms to constitute a distinct branch of law; the third fragment makes references to the several appeals for coordination between cultural law instruments. Sections four-to-seven address such appeals and elucidate the interplay between the pertinent agreements adopting the Ibero-American scenario as a guiding theme. In the course of the chapter, the deep study of the interplay will allow me to contest mainstream literature’s views.
