Introduction

Global governance refers to a norms and rule-based order that is regulated and enforced through multilateral institutions at a transnational level. These bodies cover a whole host of human activity in both the public and private sector, from trade and finance to public health and war. 

This series encompasses three unique primary source collections that shed light on Western attempts to manage the international system in the early to mid-20th century. 

Paris Peace Conference and Beyond, 1919-1939 covers the aftermath of the First World War and the emergence of the League of Nations. Prosecuting the Holocaust: British Investigations into Nazi Crimes, 1944-1949 details developments in international jurisprudence in the years immediately after the Second World War. Establishing the Post-War International Order, 1944-1961 provides further context by exploring the uneasy political, economic, and military settlement that came to define the Cold War world.
