In an increasingly fragmented world, the Committee for Cultural Policy is proud to announce completion of a multi-country project to bring scholarship on art and cultural heritage law within reach of anyone with a computer. The project’s goal was to enable comparative studies and international collaboration in building solutions to art and cultural heritage issues.

The new Global Art and Heritage Law Series provides locally sourced data and information on law and cultural heritage free to a global audience. The initial nine-volume publication was created in partnership with TrustLaw, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s pro bono legal programme.

The entire Global Art and Heritage Law Series is downloadable in .pdf format. Researchers, teachers, students and the public are encouraged to download and share the series. Libraries, colleges and universities, museums and cultural institutions around the world are welcome to add the series to their digital catalogues.

Each report was authored by volunteer attorneys who offered their time and expertise to advance the project.

Visit the new Cultural Property Law webpage to download all nine volumes in the series.
