Return on Investment versus Global Solidarity: Complementary or Contradictory?

Comma (2007), 2007, (3-4), 117–120.

Abstract

While ‘globalization’ has many obvious economic consequences, ‘global solidarity’ has a far wider remit, bringing together very different countries which, nonetheless, have very similar goals in terms of community development, human rights and eradication of poverty. Taking the Caribbean as an example, we can see that many different international organisations bring together the different countries to address these common issues. With the Curacao Consensus, the ICA itself recognised the need to respond more appropriately to globalisation in terms of archives and records management. Promoting the importance of archives is particularly difficult in developing countries with many conflicting priorities, but the support of the ICA, in partnership with regional organisational such as CARBICA, is vital in addressing issues such as training, widening access to the archival heritage, promoting Freedom of Information legislation, responding to disasters, etc.
