One hundred years ago, the Paris Peace Conference determined the politico-geographical map of Europe, with the aim of preventing future wars on the Continent. This 10 week course will examine the first-ever experiment in the establishment of the collective security principle. We consider the following questions. How successful were the peace planners? What internal and external political pressures did they have to contend with? Why did the Paris Peace Conference fail to prevent the rise of the totalitarian regimes?
