What CHIR offers to the associates

The Commission of History of International Relations is overall composed of more than 400 members, of which about 250 are active, according to the rules regarding the fee payments provided by the Articles of the Statute. The active members list is available in the reserved part of this web site. The members of the Commission are generally scholars and researchers, studying different subjects and coming from all over the world, who, with their activities, enhance the Commission, thus creating  a virtual meeting-point, where it is possible to compare and contrast  the different ways of conceiving and studying the history of international relations in the world.

Moreover, we would like to create a net of knowledge and exchange outside the official and meeting places.  Each member has got a personal web page to attach their curriculum of studies, all the personal works about the history of international relations, more and less recent, and the teaching programmes in progress at the moment. 
Furthermore, each member can publish any paper they would like to be known to the other members in their personal web page. The Commission members have the possibility to meet each other every five years in a General Assembly during the International Congress of Historical Science, where they also suggest and discuss the work programme for the following five years.
