The repercussions for exposing the world heritage sites to the loss of immunity in armed conflict

Research output: Working paperWorking PaperResearch

Abstract

The destruction of cultural property in armed conflict is as old as armed conflict itself. In instances of the deliberate destruction, attacks are often justified on the grounds of the use of cultural property for military purposes by the opposing party. This paper argues that, at present, international criminal law does not adequately deal with the issue of the use of cultural property for military purposes and provides some suggestions for how to remedy this problem.
