Title: Protocol for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict
Alternative Title(s): Protocol to the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict
Available From: http://www.icrc.org/ihl.nsf/FULL/410?OpenDocument
Conclusion Date: 1954-05-14
Entry Into Force Date: 1956-08-07
Description: The purpose of the present Protocol is to prevent the exportation of cultural property and to provide for the restitution of illegally exported objects. In view of the difficulties of several governments in adopting provisions on the restitution of property (the original draft contained more far-reaching provisions) it was decided to separate them from the Convention and to adopt them in the form of a separate Protocol. (Taken from the Protocol's introduction on the website of the International Committee of the Red Cross.)
