AUR & UNICRI: Specialized course on Cultural Heritage, Crime, and Security.

Protecting heritage from deliberate attack and theft is the topic of a new joint venture by AUR and UNICRI, the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute. In December a short online course will focus on ways to combat the threat and understand the global networks that are often behind such attacks.

In recent years cultural sites and heritage locations have become targets for political opponents, extremists, terrorists, opportunists and criminals, people who want to exploit them in order to make a symbolic statement or simply to make money. Such attacks endanger life, damage important symbols of cultural identity and economically undermine the tourism industry of many countries.

With these considerations in mind, the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), in cooperation with the Graduate School at The American University of Rome (AUR), delivered the online course Specialized Course on Cultural Heritage, Crime and Security - Protecting our Past to Invest in our Future in November 2022.
