Articles of War: Ukraine Symposium – Cultural Property Protection In The Ukraine Conflict

Articles of War: Ukraine Symposium – Cultural Property Protection In The Ukraine Conflict. “This post will address various issues related to the protection of cultural property, including the treaty law that applies, the practical issues that arise from those binding international law obligations, and the potential for war crimes prosecutions after the fact as a sanction or a deterrent for such conduct. The post will examine the obligations of both parties to the war in Ukraine and answer basic questions, such as, what efforts have the defenders made to protect cultural property? Is the obligation to protect cultural property separate from or paramount to the clear obligation to refrain from attacking civilians and other civilian objects? And what can be done to hold parties who violate these rules of warfare accountable?”
