Australian Red Cross and the University of Adelaide Law School invite you to attend this important conference.

Culture is a crucial part of a society's identity and history. Under international humanitarian law, cultural property is to be protected and respected during times of war.

The conference is an opportunity to bring the issue of protections for cultural property in armed conflict to the fore in the thinking of Australian decision makers and provide a forum for academics and other experts to share their insights and experience.
