The AC/87 chronological series contains the records of the NATO Conference on Information Policy. This conference, which was chaired by the Chairman of the Committee on Information and Cultural Relations, was held on 25-28 January 1955 in Paris. Its goal was to take stock of the work being carried out by the member nations in the area of information dissemination. The participants noted the delegates' reports and verbal statements on national information programmes on behalf of NATO for 1954 and the projects for 1955, as well as several proposals for future action. On this occasion, the Committee on Information and Cultural Relations was invited to review the Danish proposal seeking to organize exchanges and study tours under NATO sponsorship for the heads of youth movements, as well as proposals from the Director of Information regarding civil defence and those awards which might be given by NATO. A resolution was adopted at the end of the Conference.
