Description
International Cultural Heritage Law as a field of regulation in international law is the result of more recent developments, notably in the period after the establishment of the United Nations, i.e. after 1945. In that respect especially the norm-creating activities within in the framework of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) must be stressed, which resulted in a number of important multilateral treaties. The basic aim of the course on International Cultural Heritage Law is to familiarise interested students with the complex regulatory framework concerning cultural heritage protection on the level of international law, taking into account the complexity of cultural heritage as a concept and the various manifestations of cultural heritage. Thus, the different aspects of the international legal regime concerning cultural heritage protection will be analysed, such as: the prevention of the illegal import and export of movable cultural heritage, including the issue of its return to the country of origin; the protection of the "world" cultural heritage; the protection of the underwater cultural heritage; the protection of the intangible cultural heritage; the protection of cultural heritage in armed conflict; and also specific issues of human rights protection related to cultural heritage. After the completion of the course students should develop an awareness of the importance of international legal regulation concerning the protection of cultural heritage. They should realise that the effective protection of cultural heritage in light of the present challenges within in the international community cannot be achieved solely on the national level, but requires a structured cooperation between states.
