Administrative history

The AC/124 chronological series contains the records of the Conference of National Information Officers. The first Conference of National Information Officers was held in 1951, the second in 1953 and the third in 1955(1) .The AC/124 series contains the records of the Conferences of National Information Officers from 1957 onward. The aim of these conferences was to review the Member countries’ information distribution efforts. We have no terms of reference per se for these conferences, which followed up on three others. The records from the first conference include the recommendations of the North Atlantic Council Deputies, which had proposed a meeting of senior information officers in order to establish close co-operation between the Member countries’ information services in the framework of ideological warfare (see D-D(51)62, D-R(51)13 and D-R(51)14).

Scope and content

The AC/124 chronological series contains the records of the fourth, fifth and sixth conferences plus the records of the conferences that took place after 1968.
The documents deal firstly with NATO’s information policy and provide information about the Alliance’s information programme, the growth of the NATO Information Service and the relations with Member countries. Information distribution is also addressed, as are the guidelines on information distribution, the distribution methods (press, films, reports, anniversary commemorations, etc.) and their effectiveness. Documentation relating to NATO is examined.
The National Information Officers also looked into the impact of information on public opinion, in particular through the identification of Communist or anti-NATO propaganda and the fight against such propaganda. Finally, mention is made of the activities of pro NATO volunteer organizations.
