On 7th May, the UK National Commission for UNECO issued Policy Brief 17 – UNESCO Convention on the Protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage: Next steps for the UK government.
Underwater Cultural Heritage is a live issue and there is growing pressure on the UK government to act. In the light of the conclusion of the recent Impact Review and the growing number of States who have ratified the UNESCO Convention, it is timely for the UK government to revisit its position.
In this policy brief, the UK National Commission for UNESCO considers the implications for the UK of ratifyng the Convention.
