As previously announced, the Reluctant Internationalists are organising a series of walking tours around London showcasing the city as the home of international projects and presenting London as a magnet for international collaboration and a laboratory of ideas. The first of these walking tours will explore London in wartime and will be led by Dr Jessica Reinisch.
The Wartime London tour through Belgravia and Westminster will bring to life the intense debates about international collaboration that took place in London during the Second World War. Many governments-in-exile seated in London took part in the planning of the new international organisations to be launched after the end of the war. A central focus was the international provision of relief to countries in need. The tour will therefore explore the physical proximity of central Exile and British politicians active in this debate, and tour the sites of their encounters.
The walk will start at 11.00am on Friday 25th November 2016 from outside 43 Eaton Square, London, SW1W 9BD. The tour is open to all and is free to attend.
