The special event on “Promoting and strengthening the international legal framework for the protection of cultural heritage” took place on Tuesday, 28 February 2017, at the UN HQ, co-organized by the Missions of Cyprus and Italy to the UN and by UNIDROIT.


During the event, UNIDROIT and the Missions of Cyprus and Italy to the UN announced the establishment of an informal Task Force, open to all States wishing to participate, aimed at the promotion of the wider ratification of the 1995 Unidroit Convention. The Task Force will be coordinated by Unidroit, assisted by the 1995 UNIDROIT Convention Academic Project which will be launched soon, and will convene on an annual basis in New York, in order to provide a platform for the exchange of views on issues such as the state of ratifications of the Unidroit 1995 Convention, for the promotion of activities aimed at awareness, information and best practices sharing, and for training and education to assist on the accession, ratification and implementation of the 1995 UNIDROIT Convention.
