Declassified, a new online project containing hundreds of declassified documents on British foreign policy, has been launched by the historian and activist Mark Curtis.

It includes original government documents and transcripts, mainly from the National Archives in London, articles by Curtis analysing these files and online articles (from the Guardian, Sunday Times, Independent etc) that cover such files.

They highlight the UK’s involvement in coups, covert conflicts, propaganda projects, support for repressive regimes and human rights abuses.

Curtis, whose books include Secret affairs: Britain’s collusion with radical Islam, comments: ‘The aim is eventually to build a fully comprehensive and searchable collection of declassified British documents and articles – to make these fully accessible to the public, which has a right to a better knowledge of what has been done and is being done in our name.’
