In an international context characterized by an increasing number of offences targeting cultural property, this paper propose to identify the way in which the European Union has developed mechanisms intended to reinforce the protection of these objects. Such a reinforcement would be to the cost of the freedom of circulation inherent to the Union. Several instruments of primary and secondary Union law are thus intended to protect cultural goods within the European Union. In this respect, international law is increasingly influencing the Union's legal rules aimed at protecting cultural goods.
