Leading international scholars examine the new challenges determined by that evolution, reaching beyond only tangible artistic and monumental expression and paying particular attention to the linkages between cultural heritage, cultural diversity and human rights. As such, Cultural Heritage, Cultural Rights, Cultural Diversity: New Developments in International Law offers a comprehensive and original overview of how the international approach to culture has evolved from a sovereignty-based idea of cultural property to a perception which emphasises the human dimension of cultural heritage.

The Legacy of Conquest, Colonization and Commerce
James A.R. Nafziger and Ann M. Nicgorski
The essays contained in this challenging volume are based on papers presented at an international conference on cultural heritage issues that took place at Willamette University . The conference sought to generate fresh ideas about these cultural heritage issues; offer a good sense of their nuances and complexities; and reveal how culture, law, and ethics can interact, complement, diverge, and contradict one another. This book seeks to accomplish these purposes. What it explores is the fact that, allong with an emerging blend of adversarial and collaborative processes to address cultural heritage issues, has come a substantial broadening of the normative framework in recent years. This framework now spans a welter of issues ranging from the creation of cultural safety zones during armed conflict, to the ongoing rectification of genocidal conquest during the European Holocaust and World War II, to the treatment of shipwrecks and their cargo, to the protection of folklore and other intangibles, to the promotion of traditional knowledge in the interest of biological diversity. All of these topics are controversial, as are the legal instruments that incorporate them, but the issues they embrace are vital to us all, whether our viewpoint is in the global arena, a national legislature, a courtroom, a classroom, an archaeological site, or a museum.
