Chapter Summary

This chapter aims to follow up and expand on Heritage under Siege, the 2012 publication that offers an introduction on the subject of Cultural Property Protection (CPP) in times of armed conflict plus an oversight of all stakeholders and parties involved in heritage protection while focusing on the military input and obligations. The rationale for the chapter is analyze the current state of affairs concerning military involvement in the implementation of CPP in compliance with international legal appointments like the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and The Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property. Military input concerning CPP in the event of armed conflict can be considered a form of preventive conservation. Cultural property is vulnerable and available for politicisation and, manipulation which can be clearly seen in the accusations made by Ansar ad-Din to UNESCO.

Keywords:Ansar ad-Din; Cultural Property Protection (CPP); The Hague Convention; International Criminal Court; military involvement; 1998 Rome Statute
