"The end of Records and Archives Management as we know it"
Jones Lukose Ongalo, ICC International Criminal Court, Den Haag



The human existence has continuously sought to find information and preserve it for posterity. Information preservation is therefore one of the most important tasks of communities and organizations. The act of preservation of elements of human existence does not only feed to aesthetic functions but also to a fulfillment of accountability needs of the society. In this digital culture of ‘data everywhere’ the demand for accountability is high necessitating a redefinition of information management practices. Information is now more correlated than ever and found in large quantities known as ‘big data’; it is pervasive, difficult to capture, store or analyze. In this paper, the International Criminal Court (ICC), a judicial organization that has the preservation of its information as a critical aspect of its judicial obligation is discussed. Born in the digital age the Court has adopted an eCourt strategy covering all aspects of its operations. And to solve the accountability challenge its records and archives functions are redefined towards information orchestration and less towards traditional preservation.  In this paper therefore, ICC’s information management practices and tools are referenced.


  • Information value and accountability
  • Records managers and archivists as part of the information system
  • Probabilistic and unpredictable
  • Intuition and Trust
  • Records managers and archivists as orchestrators
