Funded by the Australian Research Council, the Laureate Research Program in International History is devoted to advancing our understanding of the international and internationalist origins of the global present. Led by Professor Glenda Sluga, this team of historians is investigating the international history of globalization from the perspective of people and ideas, with special attention to how, since the nineteenth century, economic ideas have influenced the intellectual, institutional and legal frameworks of today's global order. Working in cooperation with international institutions such as UNESCO, this research program aims to regenerate public debate concerning globalization seen through the past, present and future of international political and economic institutions.
