The idea for an archive dedicated to preserving the life stories of expatriates grew from two books published in the 1990s. A group of Shell wives collected material for these two anthologies from Shell families all over the world. The original material was filed away, but had not been forgotten – in 2003 the Outpost Family Archive was opened in The Hague to continue the work that had been started by the Shell Ladies Project. The archive became independent in 2008, renamed as the Expatriate Archive Centre, with the mission to archive the life stories of expats and their families from all backgrounds and from anywhere in the world.
We are always interested in collaborating with other organisations and companies. If you have a project idea, please contact us
