Introduction to week 2

Week 2 introduction video

The League of Nations was one of the outcomes of the Paris Peace Conference, but the peacemakers spent most of their time discussing other matters – such as territorial disputes, claims to statehood, minority rights, etc. In week 2, we will revisit some of these debates, while Christian travels to Versailles, where treaties embodying many of the Conference’s decisions were signed.

We have also added below a list of optional additional readings for Week 2, should you wish to read further on this subject.
