ABSTRACT

It is the responsibility of the government organization in the field of history and archives to control preproduction of records and their production sphere. Moreover, it should also manage all kinds of archives and presidential records as its function is to manage and share public information, and carry out compilations of historical records. With this, this study explains how having all these functions would make the ideal reorganization of the government. It should correspond to principle of Government’s reorganization such as transparency, responsibility, communication. A plan for reformation needs two-track approach. I would like to propose the establishment of the ‘Ministry of National Archives’ or the ‘National Memory Committee’ at the organization that is in charge of national records and memory management. It means that the National memory isn’t limited to public sphere. In terms of Total archives, the organizations should contain the whole community’s memory. This organization should be formed independently.
