FIHRM is an Affiliated Organisation of the International Council of Museums (ICOM)
In 2014 FIHRM was awarded Affiliated Orgnisation status by ICOM. ICOM underlined the importance of human rights in today’s society and felt it would be good to integrate FIHRM into ICOM. ICOM supports the idea that human rights issues should be at the forefront in museums, and that ICOM should be visibly supporting this.
David Fleming, Director, National Museums Liverpool and FIHRM President said: “I am delighted that ICOM has recognised the importance of FIHRM. The ICOM family of museums is huge and global, and being part of ICOM strengthens FIHRM’s aims to address challenging subjects collectively and to promote human rights in all nations.
Affiliated organisations participate in ICOM’s activities and contribute to the influence of the organisation and its network while maintaining their autonomy. We look forward to expanding our activities and contribute to the values of the worlds’ global museum network. FIHRM’s main activities are its annual networking conference and developing online resources to share between members.
