AIA Trustees in Discussion with Libyan Delegation
April 16, 2013
AIA Trustees Ronald Greenberg, Elizabeth Macaulay-Lewis, and Paul Rissman joined AIA CEO Peter Herdrich and colleagues from the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University in hosting a delegation of archaeologists from Libya for discussions in New York. Lead by Dr. Mftah Ahmed of the Libyan government’s Department of Antiquities, the group discussed the current situation for archaeologists in Libya as well as possible areas of collaboration among those attending. The group also received a tour of the current exhibit, Temple and Tomb, Prehistoric Malta 3600-2500 BCE, currently on display at ISAW. The archaeologists from Libya were in the U.S. under the auspices of the U.S. State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program, which contacted the AIA to arrange the meeting.
CPAC will discuss Egypt's recent request for import restrictions on archaeological materials and conduct an interim review of the Nicaragua MoU.
