Chapter Summary

During the last decade of the 20th century, it became evident that the UNESCO Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict, with Regulations for the Execution of the Convention and the First Protocol, needed to be updated and supplemented. After various meetings and several rounds of negotiations, the Second Protocol to the 1954 Hague Convention was adopted in The Hague in March 1999. The Netherlands took the lead, together with UNESCO, in introducing and developing this Protocol. This Second Protocol to the 1954 Hague Convention is a major step forward in the protection of cultural property under international humanitarian law. This chapter gives an account of Dutch involvement in the Second Protocol: not only in the Protocols conclusion, but also in efforts to implement its provisions as effectively as possible and to keep it in the centre of international attention.
