Event description
UNESCO'S Peter Stone talks about his work to protect cultural property and heritage in zones of armed conflict around the world.

About this Event

Cultural properties are more than simply bricks. Conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Mali and Syria have seen the looting of museums and unnecessary damage to significant archaeological sites and places of heritage. Such destruction has a significant impact on the well-being of local communities and frequently leads to the escalation of conflicts

Dr Stone’s talk will briefly sketch the history of efforts to protect cultural property in the event of armed conflict, and describe current efforts to mitigate the impact of specific and collateral damage and destruction.
