Author:
Nout van Woudenberg can be considered as an expert on the international protection of cultural property. One can think of: the protection of cultural property during armed conflict, immunity from suit and seizure for cultural objects on loan, underwater cultural heritage, restitution and recovery of cultural objects. He regularly gives presentations on these topics and wrote/edited books on the protection of cultural objects during armed conflict and on immunity from seizure for cultural objects on international loan.
Now: Deputy ambassador, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

Contents:
Since long, cultural objects are on the move. It occurred to the author that more insight into current state of affairs was desirable with regard to immunity from seizure for cultural objects belonging to foreign States while on loan for a temporary exhibition. This study investigates whether a rule of (customary) international law exists, to the effect that such cultural objects are immune from seizure. Or if not, whether such a rule is emerging. It examines relevant State practice and the reasons behind that practice. It is the intent that this study will provide more clarity and legal certainty in the field of lending and borrowing of cultural State property and that it will be of assistance to States and cultural institutions.
