Cultural property is a term that combines the production of man and his material and intangible creations throughout history, forming the civilizations that we are witnessing today. International law has established a set of agreements for the protection of cultural property of all kinds, historical, artistic, religious and scientific, because they are of historical and spiritual importance in the lives of peoples. However, what this property was exposed to during the war of the years 1991 and 2003 in terms of looting, looting, theft and smuggling, despite the efforts made to return some of it, but Iraq still needs diplomatic and legal efforts to preserve its cultural heritage, as this heritage is not limited to antiques and antiquities, but rather The customs, customs, and traditions of an entire civilization, and a national identity upon which the country's culture is based. The research aims to clarify the status of these cultural properties in Iraq and the extent of international protection for them. If we want to ensure that heritage is present, protected, and appreciated by future generations, we need to activate international protection and implement strict laws to protect it
