Chapter Summary

The parties were conscious of the need to improve the protection of cultural property in the event of armed conflict and to establish an enhanced system of protection for specifically designated cultural property. They reaffirmed the importance of the provisions of the Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the event of Armed Conflict, done at the Hague on 14 May 1954, and emphasizing the necessity to supplement these provisions through measures to reinforce their implementation. They desired to provide the High Contracting Parties to the Convention with a means of being more closely involved in the protection of cultural property in the event of armed conflict by establishing appropriate procedures therefor. The rules governing the protection of cultural property in the event of armed conflict should reflect developments in international law. This chapter discusses the provisions of the second protocol to the Hague Convention.
