Hague Convention anniversaries in March and May 2024

This year is the 70th Anniversary of the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict, which was created on the 14 May 1954.

It is also the 25th Anniversary of its Second Protocol, which was opened for signature on 24 March 1999. Today, these treaties are the most important and widely recognised pieces of international law protecting cultural property in conflict.
