Histories of the Red Cross Movement since 1919

The years following the end of the Great War witnessed one of the great historical conjunctures in the history of the Red Cross movement: a moment at which the Red Cross’ institutional and normative structures, its technical capacities and ambitions were transformed in ways that would profoundly affect its activities and outlook over the next hundred years. This 2-day conference brings together historians and practitioners working on the Red Cross Movement to debate the legacy, events, and ideas flowing from1919 and to engage with contemporary issues and concerns of the broader Red Cross Movement.
