The fight against illicit trafficking of cultural property remains a priority on the political agenda about culture of the South East European countries, which have all ratified the 1970 Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property. The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, more specifically, ratified the 1970 Convention in 1997.

This Seminar is aimed at officials from the Ministry of Interiors, Customs, Ministry of Culture and Cultural Heritage Protection Office of The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Speakers include senior representatives from international organizations (UNESCO, INTERPOL, World Customs Organization / Regional Intelligence Liaison Office for Western Europe WCO - RILO WE, ICOM) as well as of experts from Carabinieri and from other Italian authorities (Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, Ministry of Justice) and specialized services.
