Event: 9th International Symposium on the Theft of and Illicit Traffic in Works of Art, Cultural Property and Antiques

Organizer: INTERPOL

Type: Symposium

Place: Lyon

Dates: 11-13 March 2015

Présentation: The illicit trafficking in cultural objects is a problem that affects both developed and developing countries alike. It is driven by a demand within the art market and has become more prevalent due to the improvement in transport, the opening of international borders and political and religious instability in some regions. This three-day symposium will bring together specialists from INTERPOL member countries to share their experience of cooperation in investigations and legal proceedings with regard to offenders involved in cases of cultural property trafficking.
