Over the years organisations and peoples have come to recognize the link between te destruction of cultural heritage and terrorism and mass atrocities.

There is a new initiative to give a voice to these thoughts: : The J. Paul Getty Trust Occasional Papers in Cultural Heritage Policy. The first paper, “Cultural Cleansing and Mass Atrocities,” addresses the threats to cultural heritage in armed conflict zones and the connection between the destruction of cultural heritage, cultural cleansing, and mass atrocities.
