The Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History promotes the study of recent international events from a historical perspective. We also bring together the world of the scholar and that of the policymaker and practitioner. Our activities include undergraduate and graduate teaching, conferences and public lectures by scholars and policymakers, and publications based on original research.
