REPORT URGES G20 TO STRENGTHEN GLOBAL POLICY ON ILLICIT ANTIQUITIES TRADE

On 28 October, the Antiquities Collection reported that an international coalition of experts have released Safeguarding Cultural Heritage in Conflict Zones: A Roadmap for the G20 to Combat the Illicit Trade in Cultural Objects.  This evidenced-based report puts forward 9 specific recommendations to strengthen global policy against the looting and trafficking of cultural objects, a transnational crime closely linked to war and terrorism.  The $50 billion international art market is said to be the largest unregulated market in the world.
