2008 Guidelines for the Establishment and Conduct of Safe Havens for Cultural Material

10 December 2015

Looking to the past, I'm pleased to report on the influence of our 2008 Guidelines for the Establishment and Conduct of Safe Havens for Cultural Material, which was initially proposed by Kurt Siehr. It goes without saying how helpful the Guidelines can be in today's chaotic world, but we can now say that they are, indeed, helpful. For example, last week three members of our committee--Sabine von Schorlemer, Marc-Andre Renold and I--participated in a meeting/workshop at UNESCO headquarters in Paris on the application to cultural material of the international law concept of a "responsibility to protect." A quarter of our agenda was devoted to the topic of safe havens, during which a detailed presentation on a new Swiss law acknowledged its debt to our Guidelines. Also, last October, the Association of Art Museum Directors, with 240 institutional members in Mexico, the United States and Canada, adopted protocols for safe havens based on our project.
