New Years Resolution

US Resolution

I would like to see the United States lead the world (starting in its
transatlantic partnerships with Europe and then expanding into other
regions) in protecting and preserving cultural heritage and identity.
Concretely, the EU and US could work together to

• establish an institution which facilitates long and short term
lending schemes for cultural objects between countries thereby
building their cultural, diplomatic, political, and educational ties,

• protect the cultural heritage of war-torn countries, particularly
those in which the EU and US have military or civilian engagement such
as Iraq and Afghanistan*,

• prevent looting and black market trading by integrating new
technologies within information sharing, police cooperation, and
enhancing international law.

*For further insight into current examples, please see Lynn Meskell’s book ‘Archaeology under Fire’.
