Together with the Cold War Research Center in Budapest and the George Washington Cold War Group, the Cold War International History Project (CWIHP) is co-sponsoring an international conference on "New Evidence from Central and East European Archives on the Cold War in Asia." The conference seeks to provide a forum for the discussion of new findings on the Cold War in Asia from the archives of the former communist countries of Eastern Europe.

Participants include scholars and graduate students from around the world who have recently mined the Central and Eastern European archives, most of which are far more readily accessible than comparative archives in Asia.

The conference is made possible by a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. Additional support is being provided by the the 1956 Institute, the Harvard Project on Cold War Studies, the National Security Archive, the Parallel History Project on NATO and the Warsaw Pact, Temple University's Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy, the U.C. Santa Barbara Center on Cold War Studies, and the University of Virginia's Miller Center and History Department.

CWIHP will publish many of the documents obtained and translated as a result of the conference in future issues of the CWIHP Bulletin and in the CWIHP Virtual Archive.
