PROGRAMMATIC DOCUMENTS OF THE SOCIALIST INTERNATIONAL AND THE EUROPEAN TRADE UNION CONFEDERATION (IALHI PROJECT)

In co-operation with the International Association of Labour History Institutions the Library of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation documents the topical programmes of the parties of the Socialist International (SI) and the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) in fulltext. The source edition shall support those who have a critical look at the programmes of the democratic socialism and the free trade union movement.

If possible an English edition is presented, otherwise the text is presented in its original language.

Traditionally the parties of the labour movement have a party programme. This tradition is not common everywhere in the trade unions movement. We tried to document the latest action programme that outlines the position of the organization.

The electronic edition is restricted to topical programmes and trade union federations. An enlarged edition with historical texts and documents of single trade unions is possible.

The texts have either been loaded down from the internet or scanned and converted with OCR software or have been newly recorded. They are presented in different data formats which are obvious from the respective documents.
