Members will assemble and analyze other models for restitution and repatriation, including but not limited to NAGPRA, Nazi-era restitution guidelines, and current European processes for repatriations of African art. They will propose which aspects of these models may be adapted for a document of best practices for North American museums holding African art. Members will also research and document case studies for the restitution and repatriation of African and other non-western arts from museums in the Americas and Europe and suggest how they may be instructive for other museums. Case studies will range broadly across objects, collections, and forms of collaboration with community stakeholders.
Subcommittee co-chairs: Mary Jo Arnoldi and Jennifer Bajorek
