ArThemis is a fully searchable database containing case notes about disputes over cultural property. The case notes focus on the settlement of disputes through alternative dispute resolution methods (ADR) but also examine judicial decisions. The case notes are accompanied by pertinent documents, including judgments, published agreements, pictures, etc.
ArThemis is one of the outcomes of the Research Study on “Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanisms and Cultural Property”. This Research Study has been carried out by the Art-Law Centre with the financial support of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) between 2010 and 2013. ArThemis is now continuing under the UNESCO Chair.
