Since 2002, the independent Commission on Restitution in the Netherlands has ruled on 22 claims involving more than 400 artworks that could be classified as pillaged art. This article addresses the establishment and mandate of the restitution commission. Then the criteria used by the commission are examined on the basis of four cases investigated and ruled on by the commission.
