about this item

Displaced archives have been subject to international treaties and conventions for a long time but despite this the international archival community has had little success in defining displaced archives and articulating the associated legal, ethical and technical issues.This book brings together for the first time essays by leading international experts to explore the current state of affairs.It starts by defining ’displaced’ archives and examines how their definition affects the resolution of archival claims. The authors examine the causes of displaced archives and their significance for ongoing administration, nation building and human rights.They go on to discuss the role of the international archival community and the ratification of the 1983 Vienna Convention.Finally they analyse legal issues and technical issues in more depth and discuss a range of case studies of successful or unsuccessful attempts to settle archival claims.The book will be required reading for practitioners, academics and students in the field of archives, records, and information management, as well as cultural property and heritage management.
