In this publication, which is the result of the 2012 symposium in the Peace Palace, entitled Fair and Just Solutions? Alternatives to Litigation in Nazi-Looted Art Disputes: Status Quo and New Development, the contributors will discuss the complex matter of the settlement of disputes involving Nazi-looted art.

One of the main questions is whether more international coordination is necessary in developing standards for the realisation of fair and just solutions; not only for governments but also - and especially - for other parties involved or market parties.

The Washington Principles of 1998, signed by 44 nations, constitute the guidelines for handling all claims. At that time, national governments played a leading role, but now, more than 15 years later, it is time for other parties to become involved.
