The Historical Archives of the European Union (HAEU), located in Florence, Italy, is a research centre dedicated to the archival preservation and study of European integration.
The HAEU is the official archives for the historical documents of the Institutions of the European Union, and is home to more than 150 private archival deposits from eminent European politicians, movements and associations, as well as a collection of documents relating to European integration from National Archives and Ministries of Foreign Affairs Archives. These holdings document an important part of the post-World War II efforts in European integration and cooperation.
