About the Project

Retirement of the project website

As of spring 2018, the research project is finished and this website, while it will continue to be available as a static resource, is no longer being updated or maintained.

The network database is still held by the research project but is no longer publicly available. The research project is committed to compliance with all relevant EU and Member State laws in respect of personal data, and the protection of the "rights and freedoms" of individuals whose information the project has collected and processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). On that basis, you are entitled to have full access to the data held against your name on the database, and are entitled to have your records deleted from the database. Please communicate with the website manager [email protected] in the first instance, and your subject access request will be passed on to the manager of the research project.

This website is a virtual representation of a network of scholars that emerged during the last decade.

As a result of their journal articles and book chapters they had written, edited or reviewed, Patricia Clavin and Susan Pedersen were fortunate to find themselves in correspondence with a growing number of scholars around the world who were working on the League of Nations, or who were interested in using its archives. They soon realized it made sense for scholars working in cognate fields to correspond with one another directly, and to have a facility to exchange information about resources, lectures and publications.

It is especially fitting that the Carnegie Corporation, New York generously agreed to fund this initiative given the role of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in the history of the League of the Nations.
