On 6 and 7 June 2019, UNIDROIT co-organised with the University of Gdańsk and the University of Opole two international conferences in Gdansk (Poland) to promote the accession of Poland to the 1995 UNIDROIT Convention on Stolen or Illegally Exported Cultural Objects and to discuss private art collections.
On 6 and 7 June 2019, Ms Marina Schneider, Senior Legal Officer and Treaty Depositary, UNIDROIT, participated as a lecturer in the International Conferences on Cultural Heritage Protection, held at the Law and Administration Faculty of the University of Gdańsk, Poland. The conferences focussed on Ratification and Implementation of the 1995 UNIDROIT Convention in Poland and Private Collections: Historical and Legal Procedure. These two international scientific events were organised in close cooperation between UNIDROIT, the University of Gdańsk and the University of Opole (UNESCO Chair on Cultural Property Law) under the auspices of the 1995 UNIDROIT Academic Project (UCAP). The goal of the conferences was to provide a platform for discussions and networking among different stakeholders on the 1995 UNIDROIT Convention and legal issues arising in private art collections.
