Basic principles in support of human rights

At the ICA Congress in Seoul in September 2016, the Basic Principles of the Role of Archivists and Record Managers in Support of Human Rights was endorsed by the Programme Commission as an ICA working document for discussion, publicising and use by archivists.  Clearly this could have close links with work by SLA members on ‘archives at risk’; ‘safe havens’; and ‘literary papers of dissident authors’.

All SLA members are encouraged to read, discuss and use the Basic Principles document.  Our President will also be pleased to receive any comments (d.c.sutton@reading.ac.uk).

You can link to the Word document in English, French or Spanish.
