SiLK - Guidelines for the protection of cultural property

5. Vandalism


There are a wide variety of motives and reasons why a person might deliberately damage or destroy cultural property. These include blind destructive rage, clinical personality disorders, and political or religious motives.

Suitable defenses and measures to counter vandalism must be put in place to minimize the risks to cultural assets as far as possible. Although complete protection is impossible, a wide variety of different individual measures can make an effective contribution to preventing and defending against acts of vandalism.
