Abstract

Real change has emerged in the struggle to prevent the theft of art and heritage. In the late 1960s, awareness was raised over the problems posed by looting and the trade, and international and domestic laws were strengthened to respond to these threats. Reform in the law can certainly enact powerful change. However, before we propose even more legal solutions, we should consider the efficacy of reforms that previous transformations in the law have made.

Keywords: cultural heritage, looting, illicit cultural property, antiquities, heritage law
