The title of S-1887 was drawn from the function series Humanitarian Affairs (PKH.HUM) from the “Peacekeeping Headquarters Retention Schedule,” v. 2, August 2011, Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and Department of Field Support (DFS).

S-1887 contains records relating to the administration and coordination of humanitarian activities in peacekeeping operations, including the provision of assistance to victims of war and natural disasters.

Records consist of code cables, memoranda, briefs, and internal notes about the humanitarian and refugee situation in several African countries, namely the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia, Burundi, and Sierra Leone. These records cover a variety of topics, including: mission and government responses to refugee crises; DPKO coordination with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); and statistics on the number of refugees and food aid distribution.

Some records document the Mission on Detainees undertaken in September 1989 by Ambassador B. A. Clark, a representative of the United Nations Transitional Assistance Group (UNTAG), during the operation of the United Nations Angola Verification Mission I (UNAVEM I). The Clark mission sought to determine the status of Namibians allegedly being detained in Angola and Zambia by the South West Africa People’s Organization (SWAPO).

Additionally, there is a report, dated August 1991, by the United Nations Border Relief Operation (UNBRO). UNBRO established in 1982 to provide material and protection assistance to Cambodian displaced persons at the border between Cambodia and Thailand. S-1887 also includes “Peacekeeping and Humanitarian Action,” a speech by Kofi Annan, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping, delivered in October 1993.
