Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a basic understanding of the terms and steps within the targeting process so that cultural property protection experts can enhance their understanding of the points at which they can add the most value. It examines the targeting process through the cultural property protection lens. Enhancing understanding of the various uses of cultural property in the engagement space and improving cultural property protection capabilities are key tasks for contemporary conflict management. Attacking cultural property constitutes a direct approach, striking at the heart of a community prior to targeting with destructive fires other elements of the group. For the targeting of cultural property is seldom the only form of violent action - it foreshadows a desire to cause multi-domain destruction. Therefore, including cultural property in the targeting process and increasing cultural property protection experts' contributions to the process help protect cultural property.

Keywords:conflict management; cultural property protection; multi-domain destruction; targeting process
