It brings together diverse perspectives from across the globe (including Australia, South Africa, Canada, Greece, the USA and the UK) which collectively seek to stimulate critical debate, to inform the work of practictioners and policy makers and to advance recognition of the agency of museums- their purpose, responsibilities and value to society.

The notion that the cultural and the social are inextricably linked and more particularly, that museums have the potential to act as agents of social change is neither new nor radical. However debates claiming the museums social agency, that have for many years been marginalized, have moved centre stage and fundamental questions about the museums social purpose and responsibility, and in particular its potential to impact on both the indicators and the cases of social inequality, are subject to increasing scrutiny and debate.
