Cultural Property: Protection of Iraqi and Syrian Antiquities
Thomas Melito (au)
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and other groups have seized upon the conflicts in Iraq and Syria to destroy, loot, and traffic cultural property, including antiquities. According to the UN, this destruction and looting has reached unprecedented levels.

Under the 1983 Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act, and other laws, the U.S. has restricted the importation of certain, but not all, Iraqi and Syrian cultural property. This report describes (1) activities undertaken by U.S. agencies and the Smithsonian Institution to protect Iraqi and Syrian cultural property since 2011; and (2) art market expertsäó» suggestions for improving U.S. government activities. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
