Establishment of a Network of European Restitution Committees

In 2017 the restitution committees of France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands expressed a wish for closer cooperation and sharing information. This has resulted in the establishment of the Network of European Restitution Committees. The Network will be chaired in 2019 by the French Commission for the Compensation of Victims of Spoliation (Commission pour l’indemnisation des victimes de spoliations). A working group from the Network will meet in the spring, and there will be an international conference at the end of 2019.
