A History of Public Heath and International Organisations, Movements and Experts in Twentieth Century Europe

The Reluctant Internationalists research project (2013-2017) studied international organisations and movements in twentieth-century Europe through the lens of public health, medicine and medical science.

Over a period of four years the research group examined the history of international collaboration of medical professionals, relief workers, soldiers, politicians and local officials (among others) in Europe’s long twentieth century.
