Looting, museumification, restitution... African cultural heritage experts are calling out ... and rebelling. Egypt, the instigator of an international protest movement has, for several months now, adopted only one watchword: the "restitution" of its treasures, displayed in museums across the Western world. The rallying cry has become a leitmotif of concern that has attracted many other countries to follow Egypt’s lead. Syria, Nigeria, Peru and even Greece have joined in the dance, raising a critical question: Would the prized artifacts remain safe in their hands? A controversial issue among both policy makers and African cultural heritage experts.
