In the age of economic globalisation, do art and heritage matter? Once the domain of elitist practitioners and scholars, the governance of cultural heritage and the destiny of iconic artefacts have emerged as the new frontier of international law, making headlines and attracting the varied interests of academics and policy-makers, museum curators and collectors, human rights activists and investment lawyers and artists and economists, just to mention a few. The return of cultural artefacts to their legitimate owners, the recovery of underwater cultural heritage and the protection and promotion of artistic expressions are just some of the pressing issues addressed by this book. Contemporary intersections between art, cultural heritage and the market are complicated by a variety of ethical and legal issues, which often describe complex global relations. Should works of art be treated differently from other goods? What happens if a work of art, currently exhibited in a museum, turns out to have originally been looted? What is the relevant legal framework? What should be done with ancient shipwrecks filled with objects from former colonies? Should such objects be kept by the finders? Should they be returned to the country of origin? This book addresses these different questions while highlighting the complex interplay between legal and ethical issues in the context of cultural governance. The approach is mainly legal but interdisciplinary aspects are considered as well.

This book analyses the instruments and approaches offered by public international law to resolve cultural heritage related disputes and facilitate the return of illicitly transferred objects to their countries of origin. In addition to assessing the instruments themselves, their origins, and their advantages and disadvantages, it also examines the roles and interests of the actors involved. Lastly, the book explores the interaction between hard and soft law approaches, the reasons for and importance of this interaction, as well as its consequences.

Intellectual property (IP) law has been widely discussed in recent scholarship, though many recent works explore the topic from a largely descriptive perspective. This book provides an analytical and comparative study of Chinese and European IP law, as well as an analysis of system reforms in China. The book highlights, in three parts, intellectual property for innovation and creativity in China, comparing concepts and norms in Chinese and European IP law, and governance of practices and IP enforcement. Demonstrating that the governance of IP rights requires the adoption of a set of norms, the contributors also argue that success is dependent on a transformation of the perspectives and implementation. Students and scholars of IP law, and Chinese IP law in particular, will find this book to be a valuable resource to their work. It will also be of interest to IP practitioners looking for an insight into system reforms in China.

This publication originated from a three-day international conference, as fifty-one experts from around the world addressed a major international crisis -- the worldwide looting, theft, and destruction of monuments, sites, artifacts, and works of art that constitute our global cultural heritage. The illegal excavation and transfer of cultural property has reached an all-time high, thanks to a booming international art market, and despite international censure and attempts at regulation. Careless development threatens or destroys priceless artifacts. War causes irreparable destruction of monuments and works of art, and, in turn, the obliteration of a people's sense of place.These trends produce complex, often intertwined problems. Archaeologists, cultural heritage specialists, and experts in cultural property law provide an in-depth, area-specific introduction using case studies focused on particular regions. They address the legal, ethical, and practical issues that have fueled this crisis and the steps that are being taken to stop the destruction and illegal traffic. Finally, the book serves to document these efforts by bringing together all relevant treaties, conventions, resolutions, and other position papers.Art, Antiquity, and the Law shows that what is at stake is not only the antiquities themselves but the information they can impart -- which can be understood only if they are excavated by persons able to give them the attention they deserve.
