Speaker information

Professor Roger O'Keefe, UCL Laws

Acts of destruction and pillage of historical sites and antiquities, like those seen in Syria, Iraq and Lybia, are prohibited under international law. This lecture explores the international rules and their enforcement via peace agreements, criminal and other international judicial preceedings and the intervention of the United Nations Security Council.
