Professor Wolfram Kaiser
My main research interest is the history of European integration broadly speaking, especially the history of the present-day European Union and the role of transnational actors like political parties in integration. I am more broadly interested in the role of IOs in integration in long-term perspective, however. Thus, I am involved in a research project on European governance since the mid-nineteenth century, and in this context I have become increasingly interested in the LoN and its role, and that of other IOs in inter-war Europe, in debates e.g. about cartels (esp. the steel sector). I also have a developing interest in the role of IOs including the LoN in environmental protection. Finally, I am involved in a developing transdisciplinary project on comparative regional integration in a global perspective, and in this context I am very interested in how policy ideas and policies travel transnationally, and the role of IOs in such transfer/diffusion processes.

Dr. Mills Kelly
I am the Director of the Global Affairs Program at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia (USA) and am an associate professor in the Department of History and Art History. My training was as a late Habsburg historian and I have published a book and numerous articles in that field. Of late, my interests have turned to the history of human trafficking (at least since 1895), in part because I would like to see more of a role for the historical context in current policy discussions about trafficking. To that end, I have begun work on a book (that I am writing in public through my website) that addresses the history of human trafficking over the past 130 years or so. That project has taken me to the League of Nations Archive in Geneva, where I have begun my investigation of the work of the Committee on the Traffic in Women and Children.

My research looks at the origins of plans to govern the world economy in early twentieth-century Europe and America, and at how the politics of liberal internationalism transformed during the interwar and immediate postwar years in light of the emergence of international economic expertise. In particular, it follows a transnational network of economic experts and officials who worked for the League of Nations and for the internationalist institutions that operated in its shadow: the International Labour Organization, the International Chamber of Commerce, the Bank for International Settlements, and the academic research institutions that dotted the intellectual landscape of interwar Geneva, including the Institute Universitaire des Hautes Études and the Geneva Research Center.

Professor Jane McAdam
I am a scholar of international refugee law and forced migration. I have utilized the archives of the League of Nations on a number of occasions, most recently to document the emergence of the concept of 'persecution' in refugee law. The research found that the provenance of this idea is much earlier than traditionally has been understood, which changes the way international legal scholars have documented the development of this body of law (in particular, the history of the 1951 Refugee Convention). My current research considers the relocation of whole populations in the context of climate change, and to that end I am very interested in the League's discussions about global population and resource scarcity.

It was conceived as one of the goals of the fight against prostitution, seen as a crime related to social, religious, ethnical and political groups, and repressed into an international context with the support of the International Commission of Criminal Police (ICCP, also known as Interpol) through a number of measures of repression, from detention to concentration camps.
