The Expatriate Archive Centre collects and preserves the life stories of expatriates worldwide
for future research. We are located in The Netherlands but our outreach is global.
We are here to serve researchers around the world!
See what’s happening on our News page.
Our collection includes letters, diaries, blogs, photos, videos, and other documents which together give a complete picture of everyday life abroad, from the late 19th century to the present day. These original source materials are invaluable for academic researchers looking to study expatriate experiences from a wide range of perspectives. We always welcome new contributions from expats and their families, in any language and from any country. Read our Collecting Policy.
