This issue of Comma features proceedings from a groundbreaking session of the International Conference of the Round Table on Archives (CITRA), that saw a resolution on human rights violations and archives that led to the formation of the ICA Human Rights Working Group (predecessor to the ICA Section on Archives and Human Rights, or SAHR).
