Content and Structure


The core of the ESC fonds is a master copy of official issues, starting from the documents relating to the Ministerial Conferences from the various ad hoc groups.
The collection of the Legal Affairs Department documents sheds light on the meticulous definition of the articles making up the Convention.

System of Arrangement

The serie's scheme reflects the informal structure built around two ministerial bodies, which emanated from the ad hoc groups. Particular care was devoted to the minutes and to the reports. The master set of official issues is almost complete, covering all the ministerial steps.
