The International Slavery Museum has co-ordinated the establishment of a new initiative called the Federation of International Human Rights Museums (FIHRM).The federation enables museums who deal with sensitive and controversial subjects such as transatlantic slavery, the Holocaust and human rights to work together and share new thinking and initiatives in a supportive environment. The federation is about sharing and working together but also about being proactive – looking at the ways insititutions challenge discirimination, human rights abuses and contemporary forms of racism. For more information about FIHRM please visit the FIHRM website or Facebook page To find out more about the 2012 Conference please visit the conference website or contact FIHRM Coordinator Francoise McClafferty at fihrm@liverpoolmuseums.org.uk 

The FIHRM Conference 2012 is under the patronage of UNESCO
