With sadness, the IISH received the news of the death of Wim Kok (80). In what now appears to have been his last year of life, we worked with him to record his memories of his trade union period.
The Festival of the Uprising which was organized by the IISH on Saturday 13 October in the context of the Month of History, attracted more than 300 visitors. It was the first time that the institute organized a festival. But probably not the last time, said organizer and communication advisor Machteld Maris.
Leo Lucassen, Research director of the IISH and author of the book Vijf eeuwen migratie with his brother Jan Lucassen, debated with Professor Paul Scheffer in Buitenhof TV on migration and population growth in the Netherlands.
