TIC-BELGIUM - Transnational Belgium. International social and legal reform organizations and congresses, 1815-1914. (TIC-BELGIUM)
Building on the latest innovations in digital humanities, network analysis, and elaborating a newly devloped Virtual Research Environment for the study of international organizations, this project opens new perspectives on the history of social reform in the period 1815-1914, with a special emphasis on the Low Countries. At a European level, the project shows the ways in which loval and national welfare policies and legal regimes emerged in this period and demonstrates that such innovations were deeply embedded in transnational networks.
