--------------------------------------------------------- PORTABLE ANTIQUITIES IN EUROPE AND THE WIDER WORLD: LOOTING, SHARING AND COLLECTING University of Pecs, Hungary 12-13 July 2007 An international expert meeting organised jointly by the Institute of Art and Law and the Faculty of Law at the University of Pecs, to be held at the University of Pecs, Hungary, 12-13 July 2007. The meeting will examine, inter alia, the ways in which the national laws of EU Member States and other countries operate to prevent the illicit excavation of antiquities within the national territories; the effectiveness of these laws as a defence against pillaging; the ethical aspects of dealing and collecting; loan and other agreements as a diplomatic solution to international disputes; the fate of obviously looted objects with no identifiable national origin; harmonising the protection of excavated national treasures with modern policies of enhanced mobility for works of art. Speakers include Judge Shoshana Berman (Israel), Dr Mario Bondioli Osio (Italy), Professor Guido Carducci (UNESCO), Richard de Lacy QC (UK), Dr Monica Jackson (Australia), Professor Norman Palmer (UK), Jeremy Scott (UK), Dr Kurt Siehr (Germany), Dr Marja van Heese (Netherlands), Professor Matthias Weller (Germany).
