The Netherlands and the integration of Europe, 1945 -1986

The publication primarily comprises a selection of key documents from the archive collections of the Dutch state and is set out in three time periods: 1945 to 1957, 1957 to 1973 and 1973 to 1986. The first two tranches of the source edition are currently available online. They contain documents from the period 1945 to 1973.

Netherlands-Indonesian Relations, 1950-1963

Chronological scope: 

This project was started after the completion, in 1996, of the series of Official Documents on Netherlands-Indonesian Relations 1945-1949, which resulted in a series of 20 edited book volumes. It was decided to present the follow-up project not in the shape of a series of edited books, but in the form of a website that would offer representations of documents in PDF format. In 2007 the end result of the project has been placed on-line at http://www.inghist.nl/Onderzoek/Projecten/Nederlands-indonesischeBetrekk...
