Educating Liberal Internationalists for Inter-war China: The Role of Transnational Networks and Non-Governmental Actors

This project has been funded via the EUI Early Stage Researchers (ESR) call 2023.

This research project explores the historical role of two America-based non-governmental actors in cultivating Chinese liberal internationalists during the inter-war period. Through retrieving primary sources concerning the upstream decisions and financial resources committed to these programs and networks, it hopes to illuminate the proliferation of international legal expertise through socialization, which is on the flipside of expanding the reach of international law through force and imposition. It constitutes one of the first steps to exceed the confines established intellectual histories of international law, and move towards social histories of international law.
