InterPARES Trust (ITrust; 2012-2019) is a multi-national, interdisciplinary research project exploring issues of trust and trustworthiness of records and data in online environments. Its goal is to generate the theoretical and methodological frameworks to develop local, national and international policies, procedures, regulations, standards and legislation, in order to ensure public trust grounded on evidence of good governance, a strong digital economy, and a persistent digital memory.
ITrust is a research partnership that comprises over fifty universities and organizations, national and multinational, public and private, in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Australasia, and Asia (the International Alliance). The researchers are experts in archival science, records management, diplomatics, law, information technology, communication and media, journalism, e-commerce, health informatics, cybersecurity, information governance and assurance, digital forensics, computer engineering, and information policy.
This documentary was produced by InterPARES Trust and the Canadian Institute for Information and Privacy Studies. It looks behind the scenes at the techniques that politicians and bureaucrats use to avoid accountability.
