Internationales Kulturgüterprivat- und Zivilverfahrensrecht
[International Cultural Goods Private and Civil Procedural Law]
Aims and Scope
Volume 3 does particular justice to the international aspect of cultural goods protection and art restitution law. Firstly, the civil law claims system, possible means of defense against unjust art restitution claims and counterclaims of parties legally obliged to restitution are addressed. The second core issue of this work involves international cultural goods civil procedural law and the question of which formal and procedural particularities exist in regard to art restitution law suits. The examination also focuses on international cultural goods private law and the question significant to daily practice, namely: which national civil law system applies in the event of art restitution procedures?
Due to the severe criticism of the universally valid lex rei sitae, this work concludes with explanations of possible reform efforts and particularly examines the notion of a violation of public policy doctrine (ordre public) based on the illicit trafficking of cultural goods, alternative associated rules (such as lex origins), an extra-territorial consideration of foreign cultural goods and monument protection acts as well as basic approaches to the standardization of substantive private law in the international trafficking of cultural goods.
