Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Protecting Cultural Property in Armed Conflict contains the table of contents, a message from Mr Koïchiro Matsuura, Director-General of UNESCO; the words of welcome and an introduction. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, joined by the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, organised a symposium in the Peace Palace in The Hague. The book is largely a reflection of the symposium. The aim of the symposium has been to assess the Second Protocol's significance for international law. The symposium focused on the innovative aspects of the Protocol, as "enhanced protection", "criminal responsibility and jurisdiction", and "the protection of cultural property in armed conflicts not of an international character".

Keywords: Armed Conflict; cultural property; Ministry of Defence; international law
