Flagship Restitution Project

In line with its primary objective, AFRIMUHERE flagship project is the fight against the illicit traffic of African heritage and ensuring that heritage that was looted is returned to Africa. The aim is to strengthen the capacities of selected African Countries to bring back their heritage.

Our current projects


AFRIMUHERE’s Diaspora Partners and Friends Hubs targets museums, NGOs, heritage, history & cultural associations to support AFRIMUHERE’s restitution work. They will facilitate AFRIMUHERE’s access to human, technical, and financial resources and exchanges to mutually benefit African diaspora to make restitutions a driver of the pan-African heritage renaissance on the continent.

Membership recruitment

Recruitment is targeted at African heritage professionals working in museums, universities, heritage sites, heritage communities and in the contemporary arts and sciences. The membership drive is also meant to include a new generation of heritage stakeholders, museum and heritage professionals, academics, students, artists and citizens joining together for pan-African heritage solidarity.

A 16-country restitution baseline study

Commissioned by the Open Society Foundations and coordinated by the AFRIMUHERE founding director is currently being concluded.
