Heritage work is being shaped and evolves within larger societal and political contexts. Policies on culture at international, European, national, regional and local (governmental) levels hence are a considerable part of the reference frame against which museums are being effectuated. What are the effects of the variety of governmental policies – on all possible levels – as developed in the five IMP project partner countries – Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, France and Switzerland – for (internal) museum policy and practice relating to the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage (ICH)?
