WATCH: Internationalism Between the Wars

During the 1920s, politicians, scientists, veterans, activists, and every-day citizens sought to increase international connections with the goal of ending war and making the world a better place. The League of Nations, the Kellogg-Briand Pact, scientific conferences, trade unions, and Interpol were just some of these attempts. This video overviews these changes, as well as the long history of internationalism before the twentieth century. But the internationalism of the 1920s quickly fell apart during the 1930s as the League of Nations failed to curb increasing nationalism and authoritarianism.
