International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia And Biphobia
International Day Of Reflection On The 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda
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.
The conference was a success, not only due its high attendance, including representatives of UNESCO, national authorities and prominent specialists in the field of archives and human rights, but also due to the active participation of those who were part of the workshops and worked intensively for two days to share ideas and challenges of this type of archives, thus helping to build a new agenda on the subject that focuses on their contribution to the processes of democratic consolidation.
