Arts Council England,
05 August 2022, England

Arts Council England commissioned the Institute of Art and Law to develop guidance to support the museums sector in matters related to the restitution and repatriation of cultural objects.  The guidance provides a practical framework for museums to consider and manage potential restitution and repatriation cases.  

The guidance is underpinned by existing policy and legislative framework and supports museums in making decisions and managing cases in a legally appropriate and ethically responsible manner.
