The paper assesses some of the major global issues concerning cultural property trade from the perspective of legal pluralism. It does not deal specifically with legal pluralism itself, rather it makes use of a legal pluralist approach to analyze and better understand the multi-layered dimension of the law(s) of trade in cultural property. Legal pluralism generally aims to underline the social and cultural dimension of law, thus showing how law is an open system, made of intertwining official and unofficial rules, produced by a variety of state and non-state actors. In the age of globalization, legal pluralism has thus become a useful prism through which to analyze the complexity of global legal regimes, including that governing the transnational trade of cultural movables, particularly pieces of art.

Abstract

The paper assesses some of the major global issues concerning cultural property trade from the perspective of legal pluralism. It does not deal specifically with legal pluralism itself, rather it makes use of a legal pluralist approach to analyze and better understand the multi-layered dimension of the law(s) of trade in cultural property. Legal pluralism generally aims to underline the social and cultural dimension of law, thus showing how law is an open system, made of intertwining official and unofficial rules, produced by a variety of state and non-state actors. In the age of globalization, legal pluralism has thus become a useful prism through which to analyze the complexity of global legal regimes, including that governing the transnational trade of cultural movables, particularly pieces of art.
