Archival history

The UNESCO General Conference decided to establish an International Institute of Educational Planning in 1962 and adopted at the same occasion its statutes (12 C/Res.1.213). After more than 20 years of existence of the Institute, in 1984, the amount of records which the IIEP had accumulated as result of its activities occupied around 300 linear meters in its storage rooms. Hence, the IIEP decided to establish a filing plan and to create a proper archive within the Institute. In 1994 the IIEP Documentation Centre transferred 50 boxes of records to the UNESCO Archives.
