Event description
Commemorating the Centenary of the League of Red Cross Societies (1919 - 2019)

About this Event

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 two-day conference brings together historians and practitioners working on the Red Cross Movement to debate the legacy, events, and ideas flowing from 1919 and to engage with contemporary issues and concerns of the broader Red Cross Movement.

The conference will be addressed by two leading scholars of humanitarianism:

  • Andrew Thompson, Director of the Centre for Global & Imperial History (University of Exeter), Chief Executive of the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council.
  • Eleanor Davey, Lecturer in History of Humanitarianism at the University of Manchester’s Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute.
