This essay aims to shed light on the intriguing domains of archives through a cross-disciplinary approach encompassing Comparative Public Law, Legal History and Philosophy. The core subject matter tries to delineate both the potential within digital archives and their prospective contribution to information management, considering its quasi-exponential growth.
