ICME - the International Committee for Museums of Ethnography - is an international comittee within ICOM - the International Council of Museums.
ICME deals with museums of many names: museums of ethnography, ethnology, anthropology, folk museums, popular culture museums, völkerkunde- and volkskundemuseums. The list could be longer. Some of the museums are dealing with cultures from far away, some with their own cultures, and some both. Some work for indigenous peoples, some for immigrants, some for minorities, some for for majorities. Some are concerned with the history, others with the present. Some focus on small societies, others on continents or the whole world. What these museums usually have in common is that they are about whole societies or cultures and their objects, rather than solely a specific class of objects.
