Making Connections: The Present - The Global Museum

Should museums be obliged to play a role on the international stage?

Should museums be obliged to play a role on the international stage? Some argue that they are indispensable to rebuilding national identity and therefore an integral factor in peace building. Others suggest they should be making a contribution to development in third world countries. But what qualifies museums to deal with such political issues? Are there dangers in this approach, which means they would be better off concentrating on their own collections, back at home? A panel debates the issues.
