Chapter Summary

Almost half a century after the adoption of the 1954 Hague Convention, those committed to the protection of cultural heritage, who viewed this instrument with a mixture of satisfaction and resignation, found renewed hope in negotiations held once more in The Hague that led in 1999 to the Second Protocol to the Convention. One major source of hope was the regime of enhanced protection for cultural property whose destruction would be a loss to humanity, a loss that the international community by then seemed simply unwilling to accept. As we commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Second Protocols adoption, this chapter addresses this uneasiness by advancing some ideas on how to set the regime of enhanced protection to work and thus reach another milestone on the long and winding road towards protecting cultural property in the event of armed conflict.
