Museum, migrants and socio-economic human rights by Sophia Labadi (University of Kent, UK)

Labadi suggests that the practice of museum conservation can promote the wellbeing and economic prosperity of recent adult migrants and foster social cohesion. She discusses how these practices of conservation and interpretation have changed the relationships that migrants have with their host countries, but also their countries of origins. The poster provides in-depth analyses of pioneer programmes developed to promote social and economic human rights (specifically the right to education and the right to decent work) of recent migrants at Manchester Museum and the National Gallery of Denmark (Copenhagen).

This is the abstract of a poster to be presented at 'The impact of cross-disciplinary conservation on social development', the UCL Institute of Archaeology Annual Conference 2014. 
The conference will be held Friday and Saturday, 16 & 17 May 2014, at the UCL Institute of Archaeology in Lecture Theatre G6 from 8:30 to 18:00.  Conference posters will be on display all day Friday in room 612.
