Description

From “leader to pariah”? On the Dutch restitution committee and the inclusion of the public interest in assessing Nazi-spoliated art claims

Recently, the Dutch restitution policy was heavily criticized for the inclusion of the public interest in the applicable substantive assessment framework. In this lecture, this critique will be the main focus of attention after a short introduction on the task of the Dutch restitution committee. The critique will be analysed, and discussed using a comparative perspective.

Organiser The Centre for Commercial Law Studies, QMUL and the Institute of Art & Law

Organiser of Visiting Scholar Lectures in Art, Business & Law

The LLM in Art, Business and Law, offered by CCLS, QMUL in partnership with the Institute of Art and Law (IAL) is a unique and challenging new programme focusing on a relatively new legal area of art, business and law, both in terms of teaching and research.


The programme draws upon the expertise of CCLS academics and directs the focus of this expertise towards the legal aspects of doing business in the art world. CCLS teams up with IAL instructors (who are practitioners in this field) to offer an exciting and innovative approach to learning.


CCLS is a dedicated postgraduate centre offering LLM, MSc, Diploma and Certificate programmes in the various aspects of commercial law. In its research and teaching, the Centre focuses strongly on the global development of international commercial law. The Centre is international in composition and outlook. It is able to draw on the input of distinguished resident and visiting scholars from overseas and to engage in comparative examination of the legal systems of other countries. This gives our students an exceptionally rich study environment.


The Institute of Art and Law is an educational organisation giving knowledge and perspective on the law relating to cultural heritage, a concept which includes art, antiquities, archives, archaeology, architecture, monuments, treasure and more. IAL's educational remit is fulfilled through publishing and courses. It convenes distance learning and intensive courses (both public and in-house) on art and museums law, as well as seminars, study groups and conferences in the United Kingdom and abroad. It also publishes monographs and commentaries on all aspects of the law relating to cultural heritage, in addition to a quarterly periodical, Art Antiquity and Law, now in its twenty-first year.
