MEG Repatriation Resource

This is a free, open access resource for museum professions, originating communities, research institutions and anyone interested in museums and repatriation. This is a work in progress and we recognise that there are still many cases and perspectives that we have yet to include. You can help us broaden and deepen the resource by submitting new links, papers and articles via the dedicated MEG email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. It will be updated on a weekly basis. We are particularly keen to include more archival records from museums that relate to specific repatriation claims. This will help us collectively learn from and develop our professional practice using past case studies.  Please click the image below to visit the resource.

The Museum Ethnographers Group is a long-standing supporter of repatriation and ethical collaborative practices in the UK. We see this resource as a way of extending our advocacy and support to museum colleagues and originating communities globally. MEG’s membership has significant knowledge and expertise in supporting repatriation claims made to UK museums. Therefore, in addition to this open access resource we are working towards the development of a MEG members-only support network that will allow members - in confidence - to share information relating to new and on-going requests, whilst also providing guidance and help on repatriation processes.
