Chapter Summary

The 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict is the paramount international instrument for the protection of cultural property during armed conflicts. The effectiveness of the 1954 Convention became a subject of general concern in the early nineties, during the second Gulf War and war in the former Yugoslavia. The Diplomatic Conference on the Second Protocol to the Hague Convention of 1954 for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict took place in The Hague from 15 to 26 March 1999. The Second Protocol is additional to the 1954 Convention, which remains the basic text. This chapter highlights the major developments embodied in the Second Protocol and mentions certain points of common understanding that were acknowledged at the Diplomatic Conference but not reflected as such in the text of the Protocol itself nor in the Conferences Final Act.
