Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists of paper and digital reports and records of consultations, meetings, roundtables (and discussions and preparations for roundtables), and correspondence with leaders of political parties and representatives of governments and international organizations. Some of the records are in the form of published reports that summarize the positions of the disputants and interlocutors and the substance of their debates, providing a detailed picture of the nature of their claims and counterclaims and changes over time. There are also private notes and correspondence among staff members; reports on current developments prepared by PER's representatives in several countries; and copies of press coverage and commentary on PER's efforts.
