Parthenon Marbles British Museum

In a long-standing cultural heritage debate, the UNESCO panel reiterated its call for Greece and the United Kingdom to find common ground regarding the Parthenon Sculptures. The panel urged both nations to adhere to previous recommendations and "persist in seeking a mutually agreeable solution."

This ongoing case, initially brought before the Committee in 1984, revolves around the ownership and rightful location of the Parthenon Sculptures. For nearly four decades, the Committee has diligently examined the issue during each session, issuing 18 recommendations aimed at facilitating an amicable resolution. Despite these efforts, a mutually acceptable solution remains elusive.
