Internationale Marx-Engels-Stiftung

On the initiative of the International Institute of Social History (IISH) in Amsterdam, in 1990 the Internationale Marx-Engels-Stiftung (IMES) was established. The IMES is an international network, mainly based on the IISH, the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften (BBAW), the Karl-Marx-Haus (KMH) of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Trier and the Russian State Archive for Social/Political History (RGA) and the Russian Independent Institute for the Study of Social and National Problems (RNI), both in Moscow. The main task of the IMES is to continue the publication of the Marx-Engels-Gesamtausgabe (MEGA-2).
