Peace agreements address the issue of cultural heritage in three ways: restitution and restoration of cultural heritage as reparations between existing states, post-conflict; cultural rights guarantees and restitution and protection of cultural heritage within existing states; and cultural rights guarantees and restitution and protection of cultural heritage in new states, being the latest iteration. This chapter explores the implications of this three-tiered typology for the implementation of cultural heritage law — with particular reference to restitution — using the relevant peace treaties arising from the Paris Peace Conferences of 1919 as case studies. These treaties not only typify the ‘old wine in new bottles’ adage but laid down foundational principles for contemporary international cultural heritage law, and their implementation schema may provide potential solutions for the resolution of disputes today.
