Committee for Cultural Policy

Committee for Cultural Policy Mission The Committee for Cultural Policy, a non-profit organization, educates and informs the public on policies and laws that affect cultural policy.

Mission The Committee for Cultural Policy, a non-profit organization, educates and informs the public on policies and laws that affect the international movement of cultural property. We believe that cultural policy must be transparent, accountable and consistent with the public benefit. The U.S. is a diverse nation with a global history and heritage. All citizens have the right to see their artistic heritage honored in our museums. We believe that laws and policies should be clear and unambiguous so that citizens and arts institutions alike can act in accordance with the law. We are deeply concerned that some U.S. government agencies have ignored the laws enacted by Congress. We support digital documentation of museum and other collections to facilitate legitimate foreign claims through a neutral forum. Consistent standards are needed in law and policy so that museums and collectors can secure appropriate title to art and artifacts We support the preservation and protection of cultural property around the globe, both through scientific excavation of archeological sites and through research, conservation, publication, and exhibition in public museums. The Committee for Cultural Policy was formed to address an urgent public need– to bring US cultural policy back to a reasonable middle ground through education, legal initiatives and direct dialogue with museums, scholars and government entities. The Committee for Cultural Policy published the 2013 White Paper, A Proposal to Reform U.S. Law and Policy Relating to the International Exchange of Cultural Property, the first strategic review of policy from a museum and collector perspective, and sponsors academic conferences and symposia to bring educational programs on cultural policy to the public. The Committee for Cultural Policy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization. We welcome public support.
