News: OSA Signs Public Archive Agreement with OHR

12 November 2013 – Open Society Archives (OSA)

On October 25, 2013, OSA signed a Public Archive Agreement with the Office of the High Representative (OHR), the ad hoc international institution responsible for overseeing the implementation of civilian aspects of the 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement that ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. According to the Agreement, OSA will preserve and publish online the public documents created and maintained by OHR’s headquarters in Sarajevo, and its field offices across the country.

The archiving project, which started several years ago, includes the digitization of OHR’s public documents, and the creation and long-term maintenance of their digital archive. These documents will niche well in the ex-Yugoslav archives currently under development at OSA, and serve the research interests of a constituency specialized on or coming from the region, not least the over 200 students from Southeastern Europe who enroll at the Central European University every year.

A little about me and the blog…


I'm studying archival science (include records management). My studies bring me to Bulgaria for six months.

I have been to Bulgaria on vacation but I don't know the language, Cyrillic alphabet or anybody. So I´ll be encountering many new situations and hopefully gain some insights from them. Some of it may end up on my blog. But even blogging is new to me sooo we´ll see...
