Later this month a multidisciplinary conference will examine the road from the League of Nations to the United Nations, responding to new approaches in the study of international institutions.

The conference, from 21 to 23 March, is organised by the Max Weber Programme for Postdoctoral Studies, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies’ Global Governance Programme, and the Department of History and Civilisation.

Six thematic panels address key issues including security dilemmas and peace-making, and development and economics. Keynote addresses will be given by Susan Pedersen, professor at Columbia University, and Ryan M. Irwin, assistant professor at the University at Albany.
