Description

More than ever before, ethnic groups, peoples and nations are fighting to regain control of their lost cultural heritqge and ancestral human remains and this raises questions as to the Western museums' ownership of their foreign collections.

This book, however, identifies a need to move beyond discussions of ownership, power and control in favour of exploring new kinds of partnerships between museums and the peoples or countries of origin, partnerships based on equitability and reconciliation. The authors explore a wide variety of different cooperative approaches such as knowledge sharing, capacity building, and physical as well as virtual repatriation.
