Pierre du Bois Foundation for Current History
The mission of the Pierre du Bois Foundation for Current History is to stimulate research in current history and support researchers and students in this field.
The Foundation seeks to promote current history through a global, international or transnational approach, while also encouraging the exploration of links between the present, past and future, as the study of history enables not only knowledge of the past but also a better understanding of the present and greater action for the future.
Moreover, the Foundation seeks to facilitate the development of international networks and the participation of young researchers in all its activities.
In addition to the Pierre du Bois Chair, the Foundation funds an annual international conference and a prize for the best PhD thesis in international history, which is awarded annually.
