Last week to complete the Survey on Displaced Archives!

The Liverpool University Centre for Archive Studies is conducting an international survey on displaced archives on behalf of the ICA’s Expert Group on Shared Archival Heritage (EGSAH).

The survey repeats Leopold Auer’s survey of 1997/8, which concerned claims for the repatriation or copying of records removed from the places of their origin through conflict, decolonisation or the succession of states.

This survey is intended to gather up to date information on outstanding archival claims. The data will be used by the EGSAH to inform their work programme. We’d be grateful to receive responses by 15 January 2019.
