Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of place names, terms and concepts based on protecting cultural property and international humanitarian law. Historical buildings, sites, archaeological discoveries, archives, and collections of musea all form part of the collective cultural memory. The loss of cultural heritage deprives people of tangible remnants of their past, which have great significance for them. Moreover, the loss of a people's cultural heritage is a loss for all humanity. The armed conflict in former Yugoslavia led to major damage to historic cities like Sarajevo, Dubrovnik and Mostar. This update got the form of the 1999 Second Protocol, which was a major step forward in protecting cultural property under international humanitarian law.

Keywords: cultural property; international humanitarian law; Yugoslavia
