abstract

The international legal protection of CH in armed conflict is based on a variety of treaties complementing and mutually supporting each other. Its fundamental principles are firmly anchored in customary international law, promote harmonization of the domestic legal systems and are judicially enforceable. Intangible Cultural Heritage, however, is not included in the comprehensive system of protection of movable and immovable cultural property. In order to see the system in its whole and to make it effectively applied and enforced it is necessary to strengthen the relationship between the protection of cultural property and the protection of civilians in the law of armed conflict.
