Details

To mark the centenary of the signature of the Treaty of Versailles, this two day conference explores the peace making process after the First World War and will explore other treaties that marked the formal end of hostilities: Saint-Germain (Austria), Neuilly (Bulgaria), Trianon (Hungary), Sèvres (Ottoman Empire) and Lausanne (Turkey).

This is a joint Conference with The National Archives, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office Historians, the University of Strathclyde, the International History Department at LSE and the British International History Group. The second day of the conference will be held at Lancaster House.

The conference includes keynote lectures by Professor Michael Cox and Professor David Stevenson, and an exhibition of The National Archives’ unique collection of certified copies of all the treaties.

Please note: You will need to choose a time slot in which to attend a document display, where we will showcase the documents we hold at The National Archives. To do this, please select a time under 'additional items' once you reach the 'registration information' page, after choosing your ticket.
