International cultural property law has significantly developed at the level of standard-setting and to some extent at the level of ‘secondary rules’ concerning the individual criminal responsibility for the damage and destruction of cultural objects (in particular when it is intentional). But a gap remains as to State responsibility, an issue carefully shunned in treaties concerning the conservation of cultural property (especially during peacetime). This article addresses the question of how this lacuna can be filled by the application of general principles governing State responsibility for internationally wrongful acts. The analysis highlights that in this field there is a constant interplay between the conduct of States and private actors, with the consequent need to devise some form of shared responsibility for cultural offences, especially when they affect properties of outstanding value.
