This book is an anthology of reference texts intended to make available to students, specialists, scholars and decision-makers as well as to the general public a selection of the most significant writings from a historical, ethical, philosophical and legal perspective on issues of return and restitution of cultural objects that have come to light in the past and have contributed to the emergence of a global ethic. It sheds new light on a number of landmark texts, authored by individuals or institutions that have proven to be influential in the development of international debate and thinking on these issues, particularly since the creation of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for Promoting the Return of Cultural Property to its Countries of Origin or its Restitution in case of Illicit Appropriation.
