23 international experts on cultural heritage, as well as 11 observers such as representatives of ICOM, ICCROM, ICOMOS, ICA, IFLA, ISESCO, INTERPOL, WMF and the Getty Conservation Institute participated in the meeting. The experts were from Austria, Belgium, France, Poland, Switzerland, Germany, Iraq, Italy, Japan, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Norway, Latvia, Sweden, Egypt, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and the Syrian Arab Republic.

The Committee meeting, under the auspices of the Minister of Culture of Iraq, aimed at evaluating the post-conflict assistance in conservation of cultural heritage in Iraq, and at coordinating activities and efforts in this sense.

At the end of the session, the members of the ICC agreed upon seven recommendations (English Arabic) for future activities. The Final Report can be downloaded in English and Arabic.
