Sociological and Cultural History of International Law (1815-1871)

International law is said to be a distinct profession with institutions and journals first in the 1870's. Nevertheless from the Vienna Congress (1815) to the Franco-Prussian Wars (1870-1871), lawyers have initiated professional practices that related to the development of International Law.

They were involved in foreign offices, scientific academies, and universities, they wrote textbooks and articles and formed networks.

This project aims to investigate the interaction between foreign offices and international lawyers as well as the link between political migration of lawyers and their implication in the making of international law.
