Welcome to the British International History Group

The British International History Group (BIHG) was founded in 1987, as a sub-group of the British International Studies Association (BISA).  It exists to draw together all those interested in teaching and researching into the history of international relations at university level in the United Kingdom. As well as organising panels at the BISA conference, the Group holds its own conference in September, which includes the annual general meeting. The BIHG committee, elected at the conference, also acts as a link to other institutions such as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and The National Archives. It seeks to defend the interests of historians of international relations at national level by, for example, making representations about the format of research assessment exercises. And it has been involved in organising a number of ad hoc conferences on particular subjects.

The BIHG 2017 Conference will take place at Keele University, 7-9 September.
