Archives and collection relating to pacifism

Peace is an idea that has underpinned the entire history of the Mundaneum and is a central subject of the collections preserved in the archives centre. Universalism was central to the projects carried out by Henri La Fontaine and Paul Otlet. Many records of their personal papers and documents collected are relating to pacifism. To this are added several archives from personalities or movements that were important in the Belgian pacifist landscape.
