... evolved in 1974 out of the solidarty and third world movement. Our archive makes a regular critical contribution to the documentation of social, economic and political developments in Latin America and its relations to the nations of "The North".
Our considerable newspaper-, journal- and book collection has grown into the biggest independent non-governmental archive about Latin America in the German-speaking world. It has a collection available which is unique in this form.
A wide and diverse collection arose from accompanying political processes. These materials have a special historical and contemporary historical value and are permanently updated.
That's why our archive has remained indispensable for a profound political education critically facing up to social and political subjects.
This collection should be used!
