Nations and peoples have suffered throughout history from the removal of their documentary heritage as a result of war, revolution, and other conflicts. Access to such "displaced archives" and their long-term disposition remain central controversies in international archival affairs. This panel discusses several ongoing controversies about seized records as well as the Displaced Archives Project, a new effort dedicated to identifying displaced archives and ultimately creating a comprehensive, politically neutral directory of such records.
