Read e-book online Le patrimoine culturel, cible des conflits armés: De la PDF

By Negri Vincent,Vincent Négri

La destruction des bouddhas de Bamiyan en 2001, comme le bombardement de los angeles ville historique de Dubrovnik en 1991 et, quelques mois plus tard, los angeles ruine du pont de Mostar, marquent nos mémoires.
La cost de cette mémoire vive s’est encore aggravée : le bombardement de l’ancienne cité d’Alep en Syrie, les manuscrits de Tombouctou et les mausolées saccagés au Mali, et, au-delà, tous les websites et les musées dévastés nous rappellent que, parmi les désastres de l. a. guerre, il faut également compter le patrimoine culturel délibérément pris pour cible et exposé au pillage et à l’anéantissement. Ces destructions intentionnelles des témoins de los angeles tradition des peuples s’inscrivent dans une longue généalogie, du saccage de los angeles citadelle de Suse, conquis par le roi assyrien Assurbanipal au 7e siècle avant notre ère, au pillage des websites et aux spoliations, aujourd’hui, dans les zones de conflit.

Pourtant, depuis l. a. fin du 19e siècle, le droit foreign ne cesse de s’enrichir de nouvelles règles, en écho aux conflits et à leurs cortèges de destruction de biens culturels, qui ont émaillé le 20e siècle et continuent de prospérer dans différentes régions du monde. Ces guerres et ces crises éprouvent los angeles portée du droit foreign ; elles révèlent los angeles précarité de l’engagement des États à respecter et à faire respecter les principes qui fondent l. a. sauvegarde des biens culturels en temps de crises, mais elles dévoilent aussi et nouent l. a. responsabilité collective des États pour assurer l. a. defense du patrimoine.

À partir de l’épisode fondateur que constitue l. a. préservation du patrimoine artistique espagnol et son évacuation vers Genève lors de l. a. guerre civile entre 1936 et 1939, ce quantity discover, à travers les contributions d’un panel d’experts, l’évolution des pratiques et du droit overseas assurant l. a. safety des biens culturels lors des conflits. Les expériences menées jusqu’à nos jours pour que soient préservés le patrimoine et les témoins des cultures qui forgent notre mémoire collective, ébranlée par les guerres, sont également décrites et analysées, de même que le rôle des associations spécialisées et dédiées à cette entreprise.

Les contributions rassemblées dans cet ouvrage sont concerns d’un colloque overseas sur l. a. sauvegarde des biens culturels lors des conflits armés et des crises, au Musée d’art et d’histoire de Genève.
Ce colloque foreign a bénéficié du patronage de l’UNESCO.
