The cold war: Why we need cooperation in data collection

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    In May 2009, the National Archives of Singapore (NAS) and S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) jointly organised a seminar on “The Role of Archives in Documenting a Shared Memory of The Cold War: Asia-Pacific Perspective”. The seminar coincided with the Board Meeting of the Southeast Asian Regional Branch of the International Council of Archives (SARBICA) for which NAS is the current chair. Bringing together national archivists and historians from various institutions all over the Asia-Pacific, it was a breakthrough in exploring the role of regional archives in documenting their shared memory of the Cold War from an Asia-Pacific perspective. The fresh insights arising from the seminar of the respective archives’ holdings and latest developments in historical scholarship on the Cold War in the Asia-Pacific are captured in the publication. How to organise and develop an international multi-archival collaborative effort to expand the range of unique records on the Cold War available for public research is also explored.
