23 February: Zuozhen Liu on repatriation of cultural objects
On 23 February Zuozhen Liu (Ph.D candidate at the law faculty of the University of Amsterdam) talked about her dissertation concerning the issue of repatriation of cultural heritage, focusing on the cultural relics looted or stolen from China between 1840 and 1949. In her thesis, she studies the legality of the appropriation of these objects and the legal possibilities of restitution from the legal point of view. In addition to the legal analysis, she looks into the relationship between Chinese cultural identity and Chinese cultural relics. In April she will defend her thesis Repatriation of Cultural Objects: The Case of China.
