Training workshop on the Fight against the Illicit Trafficking of Cultural Property
Last year, in October, UNESCO and Italy joined hands and trained in Rome officials from the national authorities for culture, police and customs of The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
This year, the workshop will benefit Albania and take place thanks to the generous contribution of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation to the UNESCO Venice Office.
The objective of this new training workshop in Rome is to raise awareness and develop professional capacities of the concerned services of the Government of Albania for the implementation of the relevant international standards, tools, and best practices. Special focus will be set on the UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property (1970), and on the UNIDROIT Convention on Stolen or Illegally Exported Cultural Objects (1995).
