abstract

Through the analysis of the evolution of the most important juridical instruments, this study aims to analyse the peculiarity of the intentional destruction of CH in the terrorist case. In fact, the Taliban and the IS actions against CH have some similarities that make terrorist’s behaviour different from other cases in history. The international reactions to this brutality, however, have not been strong enough and there is a high risk that other historical monuments will be destroyed. For this reason, in this study the possibility of a responsibility to protect for CH is investigated.
