Efemérides en Derechos Humanos

De acuerdo a un relevamiento de 2017 del Foro Permanente para Cuestiones Indígenas de las Naciones Unidas, cada dos semanas desaparece un idioma indígena.

El reservorio lingüístico de un pueblo no solo se constituye de palabras. Las lenguas traen consigo conocimientos tradicionales y representan un patrimonio cultural inmaterial invaluable. Su extinción conlleva la pérdida de prácticas culturales y formas únicas de relacionarse entre las personas, las sociedades y la naturaleza, son la expresión más visible de la diversidad cultural y la esencia de su identidad, por lo que una amenaza real a su desaparición compromete sus propias posibilidades de supervivencia.

International conference on archives and human rights: an agenda to strengthen democracy

Documentary heritage related to human rights plays an essential role in processes of democratic consolidation, especially when it refers to periods of repression, armed conflicts or dictatorships in which those rights have been seriously violated.

“Human rights archives” fulfil three functions: they are essential to guarantee the rights of victims to know what happened; they are fundamental in the fight against impunity and the promotion of reparatory policies, vetting and the re-establishment of the rule of law; and they constitute a valuable resource for the promotion of remembrance policies and preserving the history and legacy of human rights.
