As part of this mission, the BIH aims to foster a climate of interdisciplinary research and collaboration among colleagues from three schools (Arts; Law; Social Sciences, History and Philosophy) at Birkbeck, University of London, as well as inviting in other UK-based and international academics and researchers.
