Jordan/Iraq, Repatriation of Artefacts

Jordan/Iraq, Repatriation of Artefacts
Intro

Explore this case where Jordan took measures to seize and safeguard, and later repatriated the cultural property stolen in Iraq and illegally transported across the border during the 2003 armed conflict. Interestingly, you will learn that this case of respect for IHL rules protecting cultural property might have been driven in part by a wish to improve the relations between both countries involved. In the aftermath of the repatriation, the border between the two nations was officially reopened.
