This volume represents an important academic and practical initiative. It comprises a collection of essays by eminent academics and practitioners examining in detail the law relating to the recovery of stolen works of art and antiquities. The timing of the publication coincides with public debate on both the national and international fronts of issues of ethics, law and morality relating to the return of looted, stolen and unlawfully excavated art works.

The UNIDROIT Convention will enter into force later this year, and a number of countries are actively considering its adoption. This consideration itself forces examination of the current regimes, since the Convention itself will not be retroactive in force.
