    An emergency Red List on Iraqi Antiquities at Risk

    Dear members of ICOM-L,

    We have the pleasure to inform you that ICOM has secured funds
    from the US Department of State (Bureau of  Educational and
    Cultural Affairs) to draft an emergency Red List of Iraqi
    Antiquities at Risk.

    Based on ICOM's Red List series, this Red List will present the
    most representative categories of cultural property from Iraq.
    The objective is to provide an overview of the different types
    of objects that could have been looted or stolen in Iraq. The
    list will be a tool for customs officials, police officers, art
    dealers, and collectors to help them to recognize objects that
    could originate from Iraq and, will alert and raise awareness of
    professionals and the general public on the illicit traffic of
    Iraqi cultural property.

    The emergency Red List will be drafted by a small group of
    specialists of Iraq cultural heritage from all over the world.
    The meeting will be held in Lyons on Wednesday May 7, 2003 and
    will take place at the Interpol headquarters in the framework of
    the "Incident Response Team" conference that Interpol will
    organize on May 5-6, 2003.

    We hope to have this Red List ready as soon as possible and
    available on the ICOM web site in English, French and Arabic.

    We will keep you informed about the advancement of this project.
