The Archives of Universal History

From: Journal of World History
Volume 19, Number 3, September 2008
pp. 375-401 | 10.1353/jwh.0.0016



This article looks at early proposals for an international archive, at the different respects in which archives are international or transnational, and at the development since 1946 of the archives of international organizations. It suggests that the history of the UN's involvement with archives is itself a development of historical and even political interest.
