Chapter Summary

This chapter of this book Cultural Property Crime provides conclusion to the book. The book aims to provide an update on the status and character of cultural property crime. Apart from providing case studies, the book presents various new perspectives like the widening of the concept of art crime to cultural property crime and henceforth the implications this has on interconnected subjects such as penal sanctions and developments in international criminal law concerning criminal responsibility for groups and individuals. The conflicts often have cultural dimensions that aim at destroying the opponent's cultural heritage. Cultural property can be a driving force behind human identity, history, progress, and, in some cases, economy (tourism). Nevertheless, side effects including looting, stealing, and traffic of cultural objects during or in the aftermath of conflicts (re)emerged in countries like (former) Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Keywords: art crime; cultural heritage; cultural property crime; human identity; looting
