Workshop: The Rights to Records of Children in Out of Home Care


The workshop is co-hosted by the New Zealand Centre for Human Rights Law, Policy & Practice, the Archives and Records Association of New Zealand and the Records Continuum Research Group.

It will bring together recordkeeping and archives professionals taking care of records of children in out-of-home care, archival researchers, experts in human rights law, advocates for people who have been in care as children and others with an interest in this area, including, representatives of the people most affected.

The aim of the workshop is to begin a national conversation about child-centered and rights-based recordkeeping and archiving frameworks, policies, processes and systems. This workshop has its genesis in the research programme and Summit based in Melbourne, Australia, “Setting the Record Straight for the Rights of the Child” and extends its influence to the New Zealand environment, where the different cultural context, and expectations could lead to different issues and suggestions for future actions.

There will be registration in the foyer from 9.30am.

Numbers are limited and participation is by registration only.
