“The European Co-ordination Committee on Human Rights Documentation held its 4th meeting in Strasbourg (Council of Europe headquarters) on 28 January 1983. The meeting was opened by the Convenor, Mr Peter Leuprecht, Director of Human Rights, who welcomed participants and expressed the wish that the Committee would reach practical conclusions as to its future tasks. It was now some six months since HURIDOCS was formally established and the time had come for the Committee to make concrete progress in the execution of its mandate.”
