ICOFOM is the ICOM International Committee for Museology, in charge of researching, studying and disseminating the theoretical basis of Museums and Museology with respect to the diverse perspectives represented by an international community of museologists and museum thinkers.
The vision of ICOFOM is to foster the development of quality knowledge in the museum field and inclusivity through the increase of a diverse membership and engagement as The International Center for Museology, reflecting all regional streams of museology through an affirmative action policy.
