This project aims at reducing the illicit trafficking of cultural property within the European Union and its neighbouring countries by reinforcing capacities and skills of key professionals and by raising awareness of concerned institutions as well as the general public in source, transit and destination countries. The project capitalizes on previous actions undertaken within the framework of two EU-UNESCO joint initiatives, whilst enlarging the scope of target groups and final beneficiaries.
