Protecting Cultural Heritage

Cultural property law, policy, and documentation solutions for today’s challenges. Our work targets antiquities trafficking, archaeological site looting, artifact theft, and the destruction of monuments caused by transnational crime, terrorism, and war.

Our Mission

LEADING THE WAY to preserve the past.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose members are legal, museum, law enforcement, art, media, and heritage preservation professionals.  Our mission is to generate solutions to legal, political, and risk management problems affecting cultural heritage threatened by looting, trafficking, theft, vandalism, and war.
