The ICOM International Committee on Ethical Dilemmas (IC Ethics) is an open forum on practical challenges regarding ethical dilemmas in the museum profession. IC Ethics is a space where museum professionals can reflect, share and discuss ethical dilemmas, helping them to make more informed choices. IC Ethics:
- offers a channel of communication between ICOM members facing similiar ethical dilemmas in their every day practice;
- shares professional approaches to ethical dilemmas;
- gathers, in cooperation with all other committees in ICOM, experiences on museum ethics to foster the dissemination of good practices;
- provides input to ethical debates through different forms of knowledge dissemination; and does not pass formal judgements about right or wrong.
