The European Union Liaison Committee of Historians


The European Union Liaison Committee of Historians came into being in 1982 as a result of an important international symposium that the Commission had organized in Luxembourg to launch historical research on European integration. The committee is composed of historians of the European Union member countries who work on contemporary history.

The Liaison Committee:

  • gathers and conveys information about work on European history after the Second World War
  • advises the European Union on research projects concerning contemporary European history. Thus the Liaison Committee was commissioned to make publicly available the archives of the Community institutions
  • enables researchers to make better use of the archival sources
  • promotes research meetings to get an update of work in progress and to stimulate new research: seven research conferences have been organized and their proceedings published.

The Journal of European Integration History – Revue d’histoire de l’intégration européenne – Zeitschrift für Geschichte der europäischen Integration, is in line with the preoccupations of the Liaison Committee. Being the first history journal to deal exclusively with the history of  European integration, the Journal offers the increasing number of young historians devoting their research to contemporary Europe, a permanent forum.

The Liaison Committee works completely independently and according to historians’ critical method.
