Involvement of Society in Conservation of Cultural Heritage" is the
theme of the Monday plenary sessions. We found, among others,
Professor Amareswar Galla and Dr. Mohammed Toure prepared to speak.
They will approach the theme from an economical, a political and a
historical point of view. After that, Prof. dr. Frans Grijzenhout
and Liesbeth Helmus will focus on some Dutch cases. Special
attention is being paid to the profession and how it can adapt to
the modern climate by becoming more transparent and receptive, and
on the other hand, how the public can be made to understand the
reasoning behind conservation methods.

Wednesday morning is reserved for the Museum Forum on Museum Risk
Management. In the afternoon one can choose from 27 excursions to
various locations in and around The Hague. They all are devoted to
conservation and restoration and specially arranged for participants
