This is a five-year ERC Funded Project to investigate the role played by Southern European countries in shaping the contemporary regime of international aid. It examines the humanitarian undertakings of Portugal, Spain, Italy, Yugoslavia, and Greece since the end of the Second World War to the end of the Cold War, looking at the experience of different actors – such as institutions, administrators, experts, non-governmental organisations – in a comparative and transnational perspective.
