Processing Members’ and former Members’ papers

 

The European Parliament’s Historical Archives Unit provides access to papers of current and former Members.

Various procedures have been used to select papers for inclusion in the archives. Between 2004 and 2010, the European Parliament operated a scheme under which grants were provided to national foundations and associations holding the papers of former Members. This scheme enabled the papers to be organised, catalogued and made available to citizens in accordance with national provisions governing public access to documents and the protection of confidential data.

 
 

This procedure made it possible to:

  • put the documents in order
  • compile a detailed inventory or list which can be consulted electronically
  • produce copies in the form of microfiches
  • digitise the documents.
 

Since 2011, the Historical Archives Unit has been collecting the papers of former and past Members directly, by means of calls for expressions of interest. Papers deemed to be of historical importance are selected for archiving and then organised and catalogued in the unit’s database in accordance with international archiving rules. They are also digitised or converted to PDF/A format.

Below is a list of Members’ papers processed in accordance with these two procedures:
