Scope and content

The subseries consists of legal instruments and supporting documents exchanged with regard to the Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property, agreed at The Hague, 14 May 1954, and its Final Act and Regulations, as well as its First Protocol (14 May 1954) and Second Protocol (26 March 1999). The subseries is organized by sequence of the registration of the instruments at the UNESCO Archives, and further organized into two subsubseries: A/114/A Convention pour la protection des biens culturels en cas de conflit armé - Réunion des Hautes Parties contractantes, 1ère, Paris, 16-26 juillet 1962 [et le Premier Protocole]; and, A/114/B Second Protocol to the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict. The logic of this organization was not always strictly followed by Archives staff over time, and so researchers should review the entire subseries for items of interest.
