Resources & Media

The looting and trafficking of art and antiquities is a multi-billion dollar illegal industry with documented links to organized crime, armed insurgents, and terrorist networks. However, we still know little about cultural racketeering when compared to similar illicit activities like the drug trade, gun running, or even wildlife smuggling. While there are few reliable statistics, and few answers to even the most basic questions, we are learning more every day.

The Antiquities Coalition is working hard to find these answers and make this website a top resource for safeguarding our threatened cultural heritage.
