Final Report of the Symposium on Refugee Rights in Records Published

On January 10, 2018, Blinken OSA co-organized and hosted the Symposium on Refugee Rights in Records, which explored from the perspective of refugees and the (state and NGO) agencies interacting with them the roles of (personal, official, historical and „irregular”) records in the life of displaced people vis-à-vis the technologies available for the creation, preservation, transfer, authentication and retrieval of such records.

The final report of the symposium summarizes the key topics covered by invited speakers from international bodies, NGOs, archives and academic institutions, raises research questions and delineates possible avenues of development for the project.
