International History

The History Department of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies teaches and researches the contemporary world through its layered histories and from a multiplicity of perspectives. We study history before, between and beyond the nations, thereby encouraging historically-informed approaches to current policy, politics, economics and culture.
