Research

I am currently working on two projects. The first project continues to examine the interaction between European and world history. Focusing on the concept of Eurafrica, which saw Europe and Africa as interdependent and complementary  continents, I explore the interaction between colonialism and Europeanism in the period when these ideas were strongest, from the late 19th century until the 1970s. This project takes a transnational approach and examines pressure groups, economic cartels and geographic societies across Europe.
The second project entitled 'Civil society and the rise of global governance', examines civil society netwoks surrounding the League of Nations and the United Nations (focussing on the International Federation of League of Nations Societis and the World Federation of United Nations Associations). This project seeks to bring together actors and perspectives from Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa. 

I am also preparing my PhD dissertation, entitled Colonialism and the European movement in France and the Netherlands, 1925-1926, for publication.
