Politics and Society France to return 26 pieces of art to Benin as report recommends restitution of African artwork

French President Emmanuel Macron says France will return 26 pieces of art to Benin, after receiving a report calling for African artefacts housed in French museums to be returned. The report recommends restitution of objects taken from Africa during “scientific expeditions” and “objects seized within the military contexts”. There are at least 90,000 objects originating from sub-Saharan Africa currently in French Public Collections.
