The Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives (OSA) at CEU is both a “repository of important collections, primarily related to the history of the Cold War and grave international human rights violations, and a laboratory of archival experiments on new ways of assessing, contextualizing, presenting, and making use of archival documents.”
