Red Arch Cultural Heritage Law & Policy Research protects cultural heritage by generating solutions to legal, political, preservation, and risk management problems impacting cultural property endangered by antiquities trafficking, archaeological site looting, war, theft, and vandalism.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that applies world-class research and actively seeks out professional judgment to answer challenging cultural property law and cultural heritage preservation policy questions.
The cultural property protection research and activities undertaken by Red Arch Research is intended to assist US and global policymakers, legal counsel, law enforcement, museum professionals, archaeologists, art and antiquities dealers, auction houses, collectors, conservators and restorers, and other cultural heritage professionals.
Our cultural property and heritage protection goals are meant to spark informed conversations about the stewardship of America’s and the world’s heritage; to identify and foster shared values that unify cultural property and heritage stakeholders; and to transform conversations about preserving humanity’s cultural property and heritage into real solutions.
Red Arch Research is made up of a talented group of cultural property protection leaders who have partnered together to bring intellectual strength and a spirit of innovation to the organization. We are led by volunteer board members, advisors, consultants, and staff who have vast experience in executive administration, law, policy, archaeology, museums, art, law enforcement, intelligence, compliance, and journalism. We have assembled together to protect international cultural heritage.
Because cultural heritage protection is an expansive field, Red Arch Research is singularly committed to collaboration. We seek partnerships with universities and nonprofits to tap into their institutional strengths in the social sciences, historic preservation, archaeology, art history, architecture, criminal justice, the physical and biological sciences, and statistics.
