MUSEUM International, published by UNESCO since 1948, is a major forum for the exchange of scientific and technical information concerning museums and cultural heritage at an international level. It provides a unique space which enables readers and contributors to partake of cultural diversity through heritage around the world. In a renewed editorial approach, it addresses issues relevant to cultural policies, ethics and practices on national and international levels. It fosters exchanges of expertise in the context of interdisciplinary research (anthropology, archaeology, history and art history, sociology, philosophy, museology and economy), best practices for the safeguarding and protection of the cultural heritage, and political decision-making in a cultural environment undergoing deep-seated changes.
Museum International highlights the role of museums as places for reflection and production of knowledge on the heritage and culture, and provides information on debates under way in international bodies. The experience and knowledge of all cultures are presented around a central theme, thus developing a pluralism of practices and strengthening international solidarity. It is a fundamental instrument of international dialogue on museum and cultural heritage.
The journal is published quarterly in five languages, Arabic, English, French, Russian and Spanish (e-journal). Special editions in national languages are produced according to theme and distributed to academic institutions in the relevant countries
