Chapter Summary

An introduction to the history, specificities and significance of the Hague Convention of 1954 for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict having been made by other authors, the purpose of this chapter is to explore the wider world of general international law, a world where the phrase "cultural property" is not even mentioned. The particular area of general international law to be discussed is international humanitarian law, or, by its more traditional name, the "law of war". For the States parties to the 1954 Convention, Article 27 is a thing of the past. Both Protocols of 1977 make provision for the protection of cultural objects: Protocol I, applicable in international armed conflicts, in fairly extensive fashion, and Protocol II, applicable in specified internal armed conflicts, in somewhat briefer terms.

Keywords: armed conflict; cultural property; Hague Convention; international humanitarian law
