This dataset contains information on more than 15,000 labour conflicts in the Netherlands between 1372 and 2019. The data presented here is an extract from the more elaborate database that is still maintained and updated yearly by the International Institute of Social History.

Sometimes you want to browse an archive by a colour. For example, 'red'! Choose what type of material you're after, and we'll show you all our red stuff! To narrow the results a bit you can add a topic of your own. Note, since this is a fun exercise, you won't find anything on 'red army'! Good luck and don't forget to tweet those results @IISG_Amsterdam!
