Cultural Heritage and Armed Conflict

All of these questions will be addressed by a panel of experts from different regions of the globe.

With Philippe de Montebello professor of Art History at NYU (TBC); Najat Haydar, curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Edouard Planche, Programme Specialist at the Movable Heritage and Museums at UNESCO.
