The Paris Peace Conference of 1919 not only ended the Great War, but also redrew the map of the world. By doing so, the events leading to the conference and its treaties ushered in a new era of international relations. Often criticised as naive, the peace-makers in Paris set up the precursor to the United Nations, a ‘world organisation’ called the League of Nations.

ABOUT THE COURSE (Link to FutureLearn)

The course runs for three-weeks and offers participants the opportunity to purchase a Statement of Participation. This will be of interest to anyone interested in how the world we know today was borne out of the outcomes of World War I. No prior knowledge required.
