Restitution and Repatriation: The Return of Cultural Objects

  • 14 Nov 2013
  • 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Depaul Center, 1 East Jackson Boulevard-Room 8005, Chicago, IL 60604
The DePaul University College of Law Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law fall 2013 symposium will address the underlying legal, ethical, and moral reasons and policies behind the return of cultural objects.

The symposium will bring together lawyers, museum professionals, representatives of indigenous communities, and other scholars and experts in the field to examine the repatriation of cultural artifacts. Participants will discuss the repatriation of cultural objects appropriated in the more distant past whose restitution some view as outside the scope of existing law, but others view as a matter of restitutionary justice. They also will address the repatriation of artifacts looted in recent times whose removal is thought to cause contemporary damage to the cultural heritage of communities and nations and to the historical and archaeological record.

DePaul University College of Law is an accredited Illinois MCLE provider. This event has been approved for up to 6 hours of CLE credit, including 1.5 hours of ethics credit (pending Ethics Board approval).
