The Encyclopedia on our website is a constantly evolving resource which presents introductory materials on the research topic. It currently contains short case studies of looted artefacts, and aspires to include critical analysis of relevant law, a selection of methodological orientations for conducting research on the topic, and brief introductions to criminological or social theory which may help us understand and engage with the issues. We also act as a repository for a wide variety of relevant publications, and we have a data section where unprocessed 'raw' data and photos are stored and are downloadable for use by external researchers.
