Would it be difficult for China to ratify the 1999 Second Protocol to the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property?, 21 March 2019

Prof Xiujuan Hu will present a paper that examines the reasons why China is reluctant to be a party to the 1999 Second Protocol.

China has not become a party to the 1999 Second Protocol, although it has ratified  the two 1977 Additional Protocols to the four 1949 Geneva Conventions which include provisions on the protection of cultural property during armed conflict, such as (Articles 52 AP I and 16 AP II). The presentation is trying to explain the reasons why China is reluctant to be a party to the 1999 Second Protocol.

Date and time: Thursday, 21 March 2019, 1:00—2:30 pm
Venue: Jan Grodecki Room, Room 164, Fielding Johnson Building
