After a successful conference in Rio in 2013, FIHRM is delighted to it will be joining INTERCOM (International Committee on Museums Management) again for its conference in 2014.

The event will take place in Taipei in Taiwan and together with INTERCOM we are working with the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan, Chinese Association of Museums, National Taiwan University of Arts, Federation of International Human Rights Museums.

The theme of the conference is 'The Social Impact of Museums': 21st century museum management is confronted with many social challenges. Museums have to be more active in trying to reconsider their social value so that they can fulfill their duty of social responsibility. Participants will discuss 'The Social Impact of Museums' and underlying challenges in contemporary museum management in three key themes:

1. Museum Value and Valuation

2. Social Memories and Equality Empowerment

3. Social enterprise and working with communities

The aim of the conference is to use the museum as the platform for social harmony and develop our international network of museums and related organizations in three days of stimulating debate, networking opportunities and study visits in Taiwan.
