The fonds is freely accessible.
The fonds consists of rather complete series of documents which give an insight into the educational and political activities of the CENYC since its creation in 1963 and allow to reconstruct the organised youth activities which were not only orientated towards existing political structures which mirrored the actual state of events, but were able to look ahead and give new ideas to the political and social establishment.
Of particular interest is the fairly rich material about the contacts with the quickly establishing youth organisations and councils in Eastern part of Europe after 1989.
Since the material was in a disorganised state on its arrival at the archives it has been subject of a complete rearrangement. Thematical and chronological series have been created taking into consideration the organisational structure of the CENYC and the activities that it carried out.
