In the fourth dialogue of 99 Questions, the topic of restitution will be addressed from legal and transnational justice perspectives.

It will be explored how local communities are involved in restitution processes and how negotiations between different governments, museums and communities can take place. In particular, the dialogue will consider which legal instruments are relevant to restitutions. Who can define a violation of the law and which legal framework is taken into account? Which international legal instruments exist for restitution processes? How can a more equitable negotiation for restitution, the reclaiming of cultural heritage, and accountability for colonial injustices be achieved? And, do legal instruments contribute to a more just negotiation or do they simply reproduce a neo-colonial understanding of justice?
