The Idea

In an age of growing political, national and religious divisions, discourses of history have become inseparable from their political meaning. The Körber History Forum addresses issues of history and politics on a European and global level, annually bringing together 200 international experts from the realms of academia, politics and diplomacy, civil society and the media in Berlin. The conference is complemented by confidential round-table meetings of the Körber History Reflection Group, allowing for exchange and in-depth debate at venues that offer authentic insight into Europe’s contested pasts.
