Ask the expert: ethics

Put your ethical dilemmas and questions to Maurice Davies
The Museums Association’s (MA) Code of Ethics defines the key principles that should guide museum practice in areas as diverse as access, disposal and complaints.

Maurice Davies, the MA’s head of policy and communication, will be answering your ethical questions in Museum Practice’s monthly feature, Ask the Expert.

"Ethical decisions are rarely a choice between right and wrong so they can be quite difficult to answer," says Davies. "I'm looking forward to hearing from people and helping them as much as I can."

Email your questions to or share them in the comment box below by 31 March. The answers will be published on 15 April.
