IOHA

The International Oral History Association is a professional association established to provide a forum for oral historians around the world, and a means for cooperation among those concerned with the documentation of human experience. IOHA seeks to stimulate research that uses the techniques of oral history and to promote the development of standards and principles for individuals, institutions and agencies (both public and private) who have the responsibility for the collection and preservation of historical information gathered through the techniques of oral histories, in all forms. Through international conferences, collaborative networks, and support for national oral history organizations, IOHA seeks to foster a better understanding of the democratic nature and value of oral history worldwide.

The International Oral History Association was formally constituted in June 1996 at the IXth International Oral History Conference in Göteborg, Sweden.

The official languages of the IOHA and its publications are English and Spanish.
