"This anthology is one of the outcomes of a cooperation project between three museums in Africa and Europe--the Uganda National Museum in Kampala, the Igongo Cultural Centre in Mbarara (south-west Uganda), and the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich in Switzerland. It resulted from a conference of museum scholars and practitioners in December 2016, which aimed at discussing experiences and expertise in museum cooperation between Africa and Europe. The conference was hosted by the Ethnographic Museum at the University on behalf of the Swiss Society for African Studies in cooperation with the Swiss Anthropological Association."--Page xi.

Summary At a time of major transformations in the conditions and self-conceptions of cultural history and ethnological museums worldwide, it has become increasingly important for these museums to engage in cooperative projects. This book brings together insights and analyses of a wide variety of approaches to museum cooperation from different expert perspectives. Featuring a variety of African and European points of view and providing detailed empirical evidence, it establishes a new field of museological study and provides some suggestions for future museum practice.
