CIE serves as an interdisciplinary and critical forum for research, policy development and public discourse addressing the ways in which records and archives and other information objects and systems are created, used, and preserved as legal, administrative, scientific, social, cultural and historical evidence.
With a particular emphasis on addressing the preservation and use of recorded evidence and archives in support of human rights, social justice and community empowerment, CIE is committed to incorporating community perspectives from around the globe, working across boundaries and barriers, and creatively and rigorously implementing diverse methodological and analytical approaches.
