AM Debuts Collection of Amnesty International Primary Sources
AM introduced a new primary source database, Amnesty International Archives: A Global Movement for Human Rights, which presents “the history of the leading human rights NGO, and how their activities intersected with other key events in the development of the idea of universal human rights.”
The content, covering the first 30 years of Amnesty International after its founding in 1961, comes from the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam. It includes about 50 hours of oral histories with founders and members, organizational records—reports, meeting agendas and minutes, conference proceedings, etc.—as well as the Urgent Actions series, “produced for international prisoners in immediate danger to request rapid action on their behalf” and the papers of founding member Eric Baker.
For more information, read the news item.
