In April 2019, research began at the University of Bonn on the international practice in the restitution of artworks stolen under the Nazi regime. The project aims to provide a comprehensive, comparative analysis of international practice in the restitution of Nazi-looted art. It aims to establish a generalized set of rules on how decisions are made based on considerations of fairness and justice. The project is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien). We would like to present to you the concept of this five-year project.
