To Faber, I will study the Andorran claim against France for the return of archives, specifically the archives of the Department of the Pyrenees Orientals and the French Vegueria of Andorra. These records date from the early 1880s to the early 1990s and total approximately 100 linear meters of records. The study will explore the context of the creation of the fund, the legal basis of the Andorran claim and the possible paths to negotiation and bilateral resolution. Arxius disputes usually raise complex legal, technical and ethical questions; The unique administrative history of Andorra offers an opportunity to reflect on these questions in view of the current architectural discourse on sovereignty and the lloc.
