    Aims and Scope

    This book examines the reasons that led to the adoption of the "Ordinance on the Export of Artworks" in December 1919 and outlines the responsibilities of the important actors involved. It also casts light on discussions about the expectations regarding export protection in both the professional and public world and presents the process for requesting exemptions.
