Emergency Red List of Cultural Objects at Risk - Yemen

Why a Red List for Yemen?

Armed conflict in Yemen has brought instability to the country and has caused damage and destruction to its cultural heritage. Numerous sites and museums have been affected by the fighting and archaeological objects have been reported stolen or illegally excavated. The cultural heritage of Yemen is protected by national legislation and international agreements, nevertheless, the conflict is endangering the country’s cultural objects that are now at risk of being illegally trafficked.

Thanks to the support of the U.S. Department of State and the scientific contribution of experts, ICOM is publishing an Emergency Red List of Cultural Objects at Risk for Yemen in order to provide law enforcement and cultural heritage professionals with a practical tool to identify the cultural objects of Yemen most at risk, with an aim of preserving them for future generations.
