Chapter Summary

Preceding the symposium organised by the Dutch Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Education, Culture & Science and Defence to mark the tenth anniversary of the Second Protocol to the 1954 Hague Convention, the Ministry of Defence organised a seminar on Cultural property protection (CPP) in the event of armed conflict. To grasp the complex issues surrounding CPP, such as the wide range of interests at stake, different cultural backgrounds, types of expertise, and religious, scientific, social, ethnographic, political, historical, philosophical, legal, ethical, sociological and linguistic considerations, a number of key issues will be identified and addressed in this chapter: 1) The importance of CPP, especially for military organisations; 2) The relationship between CPP and the Comprehensive Approach; 3) The advantages of implementation of CCP by the armed forces; 4) The activities of national and international organisations and countries in this field.

Keywords: armed conflict; armed forces; cultural property protection (CPP); Hague Convention; military organizations; second protocol
