GERMAN GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT TO REPATRIATE LOOTED COLONIAL-ERA ARTEFACTS

The Art Law & More blog reported on 19th March that culture ministers from 16 states have agreed to repatriate artefacts looted in the colonial era from Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific.  The committee of ministers aims to create clearer regulation for the restitution of colonial objects from public collections.  In Germany, items were often acquired from former German colonies in Africa or from territories under the rule of European nations.
