The Parthenon Marbles: Ownership, Morals and Legality in the era of Brexit 

Join Hellenic Friends of Labor and the NSW Society of Labor Lawyers for a panel debate on the return of the Parthenon and Acropolis sculptures to Greece. The claim is the most widely known and ongoing claim for cultural property in the world. It has been the subject of a proceeding in the European Court of Human Rights, of debate amongst legal scholars and diplomats in the United Nations.
Our panel of seasoned experts will consider the legal and moral arguments for returning this cultural property to Greece, including how those arguments have changed in light of the United Kingdom’s impending Brexit. We’re pleased to be joined by:
  • David Hill, Former Chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation
  • Ana Filipa Vrdoljak, international cultural heritage law academic from the University of Technology, Sydney
  • George Vardas, Secretary of the International Association for Reunification if Parthenon Sculptures
