New UN Resolution for ICTR & ICTY Archives

The ICA Human Rights Working Group (ICA HRWG)  announced that on December 22, 2010 the United Nations Security Council adopted  Resolution 1966 (2010) creating a body to continue to unfinished business of the Tribunals after they officially close.   The body, called the “Mechanism,” will have two seats: The Hague and Arusha, Tanzania, where the two tribunals now sit.   Article 27 gives the Mechanism the responsibility for “the management, including preservation and access” of the Tribunal archives.  The archives “shall remain the property of the United Nations.”
