Ireland introduces panel to advise on restitution and repatriation of contested cultural heritage

Ireland’s government is introducing an expert committee to create national guidelines for any cultural institutions’ handling of items of unknown provenance, as well as advising the government on how to handle restitution and repatriation of culturally sensitive items.






Ireland’s government is introducing an expert committee to create national guidelines for any cultural institutions’ handling of items of unknown provenance, as well as advising the government on how to handle restitution and repatriation of culturally sensitive items.

There have been a number of recent high-profile cases globally in which artefacts have been returned by cultural institutions to their places of origin. While there is growing public awareness of the issue, until now, there have been no guidelines for cultural institutions in Ireland for how to treat such objects.

The new advisory committee will provide critical support to collection managers regarding professional standards in the management of cultural heritage.

“The restitution and repatriation of cultural heritage is a complex and sensitive issue, and one that is increasingly coming to the fore worldwide,” said Catherine Martin, Ireland’s minister for tourism and culture.

“That makes it all the more important that we provide structures and guidance to support our cultural institutions in navigating this terrain.”
