All cultural heritage projects, whether they are education, research, or community-based advoaccy focused, include multiple stakeholders exchanging resources such as time and knowledge. Crafting a MOA will promote exchanges that are fair, equitable, and culturally appropriate to all parties involved, and may help reveal pontetially troublemsome or contentious areas of the future project before it even begins. As this IPinCH Fact Sheet describes, a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), or Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), is a document that describes the terms of a cooperative agreement between two or more parties, as well as the goals of the cooperation. A MOA typically makrs the beginning of a collaborative project, and is an opportunity for stakeholders to outline their visions, conduct debates, and resolve issues.
The IPinCH Fact Sheet initiative aims to provide information and guidance on important issues emerging in cultural heritage research. RESOURCESDeclarationsReportsPublicationsPresentationsVideosPodcastsFact SheetsTeaching ResourcesReading ListsLinks
