Nepal's living cultural heritage is under continuous threat from looting, theft, and trafficking. As a result, many of its cultural objects have ended up in foreign private and public collections. Now, activists both from within and outside of Nepal are collectively demanding their return. Contested cultural objects should always be repatriated to their rightful owners when claimed, but those possessing these contested cultural objects should also proactively seek other ways to work towards restorative justice.
