ABOUT the conference: The history of the past 25 years demonstrates that,
despite international conventions and public awareness, cultural property
is a target of increasing priority in the event of armed conflicts. This
development is due to dramatic changes in warfare. Scholars -
archaeologists as well as cultural heritage professionals - must consider
their role and involvement in the protection of cultural property, facing
the challenge of these dramatic changes in the modes of warfare and the
incredible loss of cultural property. We have to respond to pressing
ethical, epistemological and even existential questions demanding a
serious attention in a constructive, systematic manner.
