Abducted Art & Cultural Theft: Cultural Crime and the Market for Illicit Antiquities

In this episode Roo and Simon launch their new series “Abducted Art & Cultural Theft” where they will be interviewing experts to discuss the modern fight for the restitution of cultural artefacts and the illicit trafficking of looted objects. In their first episode they will be joined by Professor Donna Yates, an Associate Professor in the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology at Maastricht University to talk about her research on the global trade of trafficking culture. Together they unpack how these historical and cultural artefacts are effecting a web of organised crime that connects the theft at heritage sites to the elite market of stolen global art.
