The 70th anniversary of the 1954 Hague Convention

The 70th anniversary of the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict has been celebrated with an international conference organized by UNESCO in The Hague. The convention, considered the "mother of all conventions for the protection of cultural heritage," was created to safeguard cultural heritage in both peace and conflict. ICOM, along with other organizations, has been actively involved in implementing the convention, including through the establishment of the Blue Shield organization. Despite ongoing threats to cultural heritage, including in conflict zones, ICOM remains committed to raising awareness about the importance of the convention and advocating for its universal ratification and implementation.
