Karen National Union

The announcement comes with some delay but that's not to say we're less excited to be able to report that the archives of the Karen National Union (KNU) are now available through IISH (actually they were since late 2013, early 2014).

It took a while to bring the files together from different places and then on to Amsterdam, but we managed. The archive roughly covers the period 1970-2002, with the earliets documents being from 1967. For access to the archive (written) permission from the depositor is required.

The inventory and further details on the collection and the KNU can be found under this link:
