Search Guide

The Council of Europe's  paper archives, also known as the Central Archives of the Council of Europe, consist of the collections and fonds listed on the right. They are managed by the Directorate of Information Technology. To search in all collections except the thematic files, please use WebCAT, the online catalogue of the Central Archives.  A list of the thematic files and their content can be consulted here: Black Book. The list is made available for information purposes only. Much of the content of the thematic files is only available for internal staff, and work is being carried out to make the declassified documentation available to the general public online. A large budget and much effort are required to digitise this rich legacy. We thank you for your patience.
