International lawyer and Legal Advisor for Greece’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr Artemis Papathanassiou, will take part in a special video conference to discuss how Greece is handling recent attacks against its cultural and religious heritage.
The conference, which is hosted on behalf of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Greek Consul General in Sydney, Christos Karras, will be held on Wednesday, November 11, from 5pm to 6.30pm.
Dr Papathanassiou will discuss how Greece is among the leading countries in the fight against the illegal trafficking in cultural property, with a specific emphasis on key aspects of Greek “cultural diplomacy.”
A spotlight will be placed on emblematic case studies such as how Greece is managing the return of the Parthenon Marbles, as well as the recent conversion of the Hagia Sophia World Heritage Monument into a mosque.
Following her presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask Dr Papathanassiou a question in the Q&A session.
