Ethics and deontology in archival practice: uses and epistemological issues

Résumé

Ethics and professional conduct have become central concerns in the archival profession, as well as in heritage-related fields, for several years. The integrity of cultural artifacts and the respect for the rights and dignity of individuals are of paramount importance. These principles are governed by a professional archival framework and specific codes of conduct that archivists must adhere to. This paper delves into ethical and deontological considerations within the context of an archivist's role. It explores how these considerations impact every stage of the archival process, from acquisition to giving access to documents for users. To offer a comprehensive understanding of the various layers of ethical management in the archival field, we have developed a holistic diagram encompassing all the elements that shape a professional's actions throughout the archive processing journey. Part of these elements belong to the professional framework and another part of them is linked to the subjectivity factors specific to the archivist. This model takes into account, in particular, the dynamics between various stakeholders in the system, including the relationships between archivists and creators of archives, as well as the relationships between archivists and users of archives. These relationships further underscore the societal role of the archivist.
