Recommendation for the Protection of Movable Cultural Property (1978)

Movable cultural heritage includes objects that people create or collect and forms an important part of a nation's identity. These objects are known as cultural property and can be artistic, technological, historical or natural in origin. There is increasing trade and exchange of cultural property between nations. This exchange can enhance international appreciation of cultural diversity, but it can also lead to the loss of significant aspects of a nation's cultural heritage.

Preface: The Recommendation for the Protection of Movable Cultural Property was adopted by The General Conference of UNESCO (20th Session), Paris, 24 Oct.-28 Nov., 1978.
