Abstract

This paper considers the moral problems raised by the paper by Thomas Weiss and Nina Connelly: 'Cultural Cleansing and Mass Atrocities: Protecting Cultural Heritage in Armed Conflict Zones'. Weiss and Connelly argue for an extension of the 'Responsibility to Protect' legislation to argue that attacks on heritage could be a just cause for war. This view is opposed, and broader worries about the moral implications of the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property are considered.
