Research project Today history wars rage all over the world. National views promoted in history textbooks provoke sharp protests from neighbouring countries in Asia and the Balkans. Since 1919 bilateral and regional revision projects work for history textbook reform.
To prevent future wars, in 1919 reform pedagogeus and peace activists wanted history textbooks to be cleaned of all instances of militarism, nationalism and prejudiced descriptions of neighbouring countries' peoples, cultures and histories. Studying the revision projects conducted by the Norden Associations, League of Nations, UNESCO and Council of Europe, the project sheds light upon the encounter between national history cultures and an increasingly internationalised educational culture. Besides aspects of the history of science, organisational, ideological and didactical perspectives are applied to European efforts to reform history education.
