Protecting our Heritage and Fostering Creativity
Workshop for the Libyan police on the prevention and fight against illicit trafficking of cultural property
Logo Convention 1970
The workshop constitutes a follow-up to the Introductory Workshop on the prevention and the fight against illicit trafficking of cultural property, organized in Tripoli, in April 2013, and the training session held at the Sabratha World Heritage site in September 2013.
It is held within a broader capacity-building programme funded by the Government of Italy, UNESCO and the Department of Antiquities of Libya.
The participants will be provided with a preliminary training kit bringing together the lectures presented in the workshop in Sabratha, with the aim to test it and refine it for use in future training sessions. This new workshop is aimed at a select number of staff from different bodies of various public institutions (such as customs and police departments) from the Cyrenaic region, with a view to enforcing an efficient protection system in the country and strengthening Libyan police in the fight against the illicit trafficking of cultural property in Libya.
The workshop will be presented by 4 instructors: two professors from Benghazi, one police officer and one customs official.
