We have reproduced the original archival materials to the extent that the physical condition of the material and technology will permit. The Karl Polanyi Institute of Political Economy is firmly committed to open access to the archive, and over the years has welcomed scholars, researchers, and students from around the world.
The intellectual legacy of Karl Polanyi is a rich and vast archival collection that includes notes, lecture notes and outlines, outlines of projected books, drafts of manuscripts (published and unpublished), unpublished papers and published articles by Karl Polanyi, as well as papers by others.
The collection also includes Polanyi’s lifetime correspondence with important intellectuals, political figures, students, colleagues, family, and friends. The material is in Hungarian, German and English.
The Institute will also welcome visitors who wish to research the archival material. Contact us to book your visit.
