A non-profit organisation based in Switzerland has secured the future of a leading archive about the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
The Conflict Archive on the Internet (Cain) website had faced crippling cuts because Ulster University, which hosts the archive at its Derry campus, said it could not afford to keep it going.
Academics said that would represent intellectual vandalism of a free historical memory bank of data, stories and images used by scholars around the world.
Ulster University announced on Wednesday that funding from Initiatives of Change would help to sustain the archive. It is understood to have donated £150,000.
