The Federal Government has agreed on Framework Principles for dealing with collections from colonial contexts. They were agreed on March 13, 2019 by the ministers in charge of the Federal Cultural Policy, namely Federal Foreign Office Minister of State for International Cultural Policy Michelle Müntefering and Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media Monika Grütters, the Ministers of Cultural Affairs of the Länder and the municipal umbrella organisations. Germany hence sets a first signal for its positioning on the topic “collections from colonial contexts”. You can find the text of the agreed document hereunder.
