As in 2017 for the G7 Culture, UNIDROIT has been invited this year to attend the G20 Culture Ministerial meetings. Professor Maria Chiara Malaguti, President of UNIDROIT, is participating in the panel discussion “’United Against Crime’, Intergovernmental, Judicial and Police Cooperation” of the G20 Culture online meeting which is taking place on 9 April 2021 to discuss “Private Law as the basis for effective action”.
Dr Jorge Sanchez Cordero Davila, member of the UNIDROIT Governing Council, is also attending the meeting with a presentation in the session entitled “The protection to come. New technologies and new eyes”.
It is an opportunity to reflect on how international institutions – among which UNIDROIT – and different countries of the G20 addressed the several issues connected to cultural property protection and fighting the illicit traffic in cultural property.
This multi-stakeholder webinar aims to fill this gap by providing policymakers of G20 countries with the latest evidence to define clear policy objectives and to jointly pursue them through coordinated action. The webinar will be an occasion to analyse the situation, understand international and G20 countries policies and experiences to combat illicit trafficking, intervene in an emergency and imagine a future for cultural property protection. The findings of the webinar will inform the Declaration of G20 Ministers of Culture and will set the scene for further cooperation of G20 countries on these issues.
