The International Association of Labour History Institutions (IALHI)

The International Association of Labour History Institutions (IALHI) brings together archives, libraries, documentation centres, museums and research institutions specializing in the history and theory of the labour and social movements from all over the world. IALHI's main goal is to facilitate the exchange of expertise in order to preserve, and promote the access to, and the use of, their respective collections.


The next conference of the IALHI will take place on 5-8 September 2023 in Buenos Aires, with the theme “Labour History beyond Europe and North America: Challenges, Initiatives, Debates”. The call for papers (in English, Spanish, and Portuguese) can be found here. The deadline for sending proposals has already passed. More information about the final programme will be published in July.

An overview of IALHI conferences since 1970 can be found here.
