Immunity from Seizure for Cultural Objects on Loan – Discussion Paper

Immunity from Seizure for Cultural Objects on Loan – Discussion Paper

Ministry for Culture and Heritage (2012)

The Ministry for Culture and Heritage has published a discussion paper inviting submissions on whether New Zealand should introduce legislation to provide immunity from seizure for cultural objects on loan.  Such legislation could have significant implications for Māori and also brings into play a number of issues relating to cultural artifacts and the repatriation of taonga that were addressed by the Waitangi Tribunal in its 2011 report Ko Aotearoa Tēnei (A Report into Claims Concerning New Zealand Law and Policy Affecting Māori Culture and Identity).

The Ministry has invited submissions on the issues raised in the discussion paper by Monday 24 September 2012.
