The UNIDROIT Convention is now in force in several countries, and other States are actively considering ratification. If you deal with a country where the Convention applies, do you fully understand what UNIDROIT means for you? Which transactions are caught? What are the time limits? This article by article Commentary, written by an expert with decades of experience with the problems of illicit traffic in cultural objects, answers these questions and responds to criticisms which have been made of the Convention.
