Ethnic / religious tension settings
In addition to these harms is the fact that in fraught contexts, everything written can become political. The DA-RT efforts do not recognise that those we research are agents themselves, and can try to obtain our data and materials to fight their own political battles. It is thus not just authoritarian states or state strategies that are at issue, but the fact that there are also actors on the ground that have their own potential reasons to make use of our materials. I have seen nothing from the DA-RT advocate side that acknowledges this potential, but the use of the Boston College archives by one side in the Northern Ireland conflict is just one example of how this can develop.
I am attaching here a copy of my paper on these matters. A link to the ASN statement on DA-RT is here: http://nationalities.org/news/asn-issue ... ding-da-rt
