The Code of Ethics for Museums provides clear guidelines for professional action, or does it? After a quick overview of the AAM and ICOM Codes of Ethics, participants will work in small groups to apply the codes to hypothetical cases based on real-world experiences. Peers and presenters will be challenged to determine what is ethical behavior in museums today. The session will discuss hot-button topics and demonstrate the relativity of the ethical choices that museum professionals face today.
