Recent American Legislation Responding to the Loss of Cultural Heritage

Derek Fincham


The United States Congress is considering adding new legislation to its current scheme regulating Cultural Property. The proposed law, the Protect and Preserve Cultural Property Act, would create a new Coordinator and Committee and charge them with harmonizing the cultural heritage policing efforts of the United States. These changes do not alter American law in a fundamental way, but rather mark instead the subtle move towards a dedicated group tasked with enforcing, educating, and evaluating this body of cultural property law and policy in the United States.
