Abstract (in English)

The ICOMOS symposium comes just at the right time as only a few days ago the UNESCO General Conference in Paris adopted by overwhelming majority the International Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage which completes the organisation's existing legal instruments for the safeguarding of heritage, first the Hague Convention of 1954 with which ICOMOS is connected through the Blue Shield; furthermore the Convention against Illicit Export, Import and Transfer of Cultural Property of 1970, which is of great importance to us not only in connection with the events in Iraq; then the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage of 1972, in the implementation of which we are constantly involved as advisory body to UNESCO; finally the Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage of 2001, to which our Underwater Scientific Committee has made decisive contributions.
