ARCHIVES AND HUMAN RIGHTS

With the participation of prominent specialists in archival matters, and based on the practices associated to the treatment and preservation of documentation on serious human rights violations, the conference responded to the need to update the challenges and advances in the field. In particular, the debate was centered around documentation produced in contexts of political violence, dictatorships and armed conflicts, among others. Additionally, the conference served the purpose of acknowledging the contribution made by this field in the transitional and post-transitional processes to strengthen democratic systems.
