This 3-hour seminar will provide an introduction to the law which may protect cultural heritage in Hong Kong. The seminar will begin by considering what is meant by the term “cultural heritage” and then continue by considering what may constitute cultural heritage in Hong Kong. The seminar will then consider the law which may protect this cultural heritage in Hong Kong and the issues that have arisen with regard to cultural heritage protection in Hong Kong. The seminar will consider built heritage, Hong Kong’s part in the illicit trade in cultural heritage, in particular the illicit trade in antiquities looted from China, and Hong Kong’s intangible cultural heritage.
