The Final Act of the Conference on Security and Co-Operation in Europe, often referred to as the "Helsinki Accords," has important implications for art and artists. The Final Act applies to three broad categories of art law issues: cultural cooperation and exchange of cultural material; the rights of individual artists; and other international cooperation. This study will examine each of these categories in the context of a current or recent problem, consider pertinent provisions of the Final Act, and conclude with a brief recommendation and forecast.
