Conducts research and collects data on the global history of labour, workers, and labour relations

Annual Report 2006-7

In late 2006 we started drafting a new Strategy Memorandum 2007-2010, formulating a chief objective for each of the three main operations at the Institute (collecting, research, academic services). In the years ahead the IISH aims to pioneer advances in international research on global labour and economic history and to set up large databases and networks that serve this purpose. In the field of collections, the IISH will focus on forming a trusted digital repository to enable us to continue performing our archival duties. In academic services, development of a large global labour history portal is on the agenda.
