Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act

"The  requires continuing review of bilateral agreements" says Heritage at State. What a shame that the 1970 UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property is implemented selectively and in a pointedly temporary form instead of being applied to preventing all and any cases of the illicit import, export and transfer of ownership of cultural property in which US dealers and collectors may be engaged. It is time to scrap this 1983 legislation and create regulations more fitted to the problems of the US antiquities and art markets of the early decades of the 21st century and not some 1980s never-neverland.
