NEW YORK, April 2, 2015 –

Columbia University Libraries/Information Services (CUL/IS)’s Center for Human Rights Documentation & Research (CHRDR) is pleased to announce the development of the Archive on the Legacy of Conflict in South Asia.

The Archive on the Legacy of Conflict in South Asia is a collaborative initiative between CHRDR, the Columbia Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR), and the Armed Conflict Resolution and People’s Rights Project (ACRes) of the Center for Social Sector Leadership (formerly Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership)—Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley.

This pilot documentation project seeks to improve access to unique and primary source materials, especially those that are currently inaccessible or at risk of disappearing.
