Diplomatic/International History Working Group: More Than Meets the Eye. Informal Actors and Diplomacy - Discussion Session

Dates:
  • Mon 18 Jan 2021 14.00 - 16.00
  Add to Calendar 2021-01-18 14:00 2021-01-18 16:00 Europe/Paris Diplomatic/International History Working Group: More Than Meets the Eye. Informal Actors and Diplomacy - Discussion Session

With a new year already underway, the Diplomatic/International History Working Group returns with a new discussion meeting!

Building upon our last debate about the benefits and limits of using the state as a fully independent subject matter, we now take the issue further by looking into the specific role of informal agents.

How does the study of informal actors transform our understanding of diplomacy? What are the possible limitations, if any, of this approach? And most importantly, what constitutes a diplomatic actor? To answer these questions, which lay at the heart of the New Diplomatic History, our next discussion will revolve around two recent articles:

 

·        Birgit Tremml-Verner and Dorthée Goetze, A Multitude of Actors in Early Modern Diplomacy , Journal of Early Modern History, 23/5 (2019), 407-422. 

·        David Verster, Private Diplomacy and Dutch Foreign Relations: the Rijkens Group and the West New Guinea Dispute, 1949-62 , Diplomatica, 2 (2020), 79-99.

 

If interested, please do not hesitate to contact Klaudia Kuchno ([email protected]), Konstantinos Poulios ([email protected]) or Asensio Robles ([email protected]) to get the readings and the ZOOM link.
