The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world's largest humanitarian organization, with 189 member National Societies. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
Organizational Context
Archives contribute to the organization in three main ways. They foster and facilitate: 1. Organizational Memory: as evidence of past actions, the archives can help to avoid duplication of effort by acting as sources of information on key issues or problems that the Federation faces again and again. 2. Historical Research: the archives are everyday business records that have been preserved, so they can give a researcher a closer look at the way the Federation operated in the past than any other source. 3. Accountability: the archives can be checked to ensure that the activities and responsibilities that have been entrusted to the Federation have been carried out as effectively as possible.
