From March 2 - 5 2020, a sub-regional workshop on the UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property and the UNIDROIT Convention on Stolen or Illegally Exported Cultural Objects is taking place in Kingston, Jamaica. This workshop aims to confront illicit trafficking of pre-Columbian, religious and colonial cultural heritage in the Caribbean, as well with the illicit commercialization of the underwater cultural heritage recovered from shipwrecks and other submerged structures.

The Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport of Jamaica is hosting the workshop in cooperation with the Jamaica National Commission for UNESCO and the UNESCO Cluster Office for the Caribbean.
