Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines some of the experiences gained in Canada Border Services Agency and points out some conclusions that might be drawn therefrom. The end of the general assembly of Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on 14 November 1970 saw the appearance of the convention concerning measures to be taken to prohibit and impede the illicit import, export, and transfer of ownership of cultural goods. The overall reaction to the situation is that, if countries of origin want countries of arrival to work for the preservation of their cultural, material they must be prepared to be fully supportive of such efforts. The chapter concludes that a lot of the incentive to the illicit trade in antiquities would be nullified if countries of origin would take action not just to ensure better protection for their cultural resources at home.
