Common Archival Heritage

Preservation, Accessibility, Digitisation


The State Archives of the Republic of North Macedonia, together with ICARUS, has the honour to organize the 31st ICARUS Convention in Skopje and Ohrid.

The first two days of the Convention (8 and 9 November) will take place in Skopje, and the last day of the Convention (10 November) is planned to be held in Ohrid, a town which is a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage.

As most of historical processes are not geographically or otherwise isolated, archives worldwide, whether national, regional, or even personal, have also a mission to keep and present documents concerning common history. Hence the intention of the 31st ICARUS Convention is to shed light to the importance of common archival heritage that should be
a base for a fruitful scientific and cultural cooperation as well as for the promotion of good neighbourly relations.

We expect participants to highlight the archival heritage of international/regional interest, its preservation, accessibility,
digitization, especially its presence at online archival platforms and development of digital research tools.

Moreover, the contributions will be related to the provenance and preservation of the archival heritage in the context of political, legal and ethical issues.
