The European Network in Universal and Global History seeks to foster and promote research and teaching through the establishment of platforms of communication and exchange for scholars working in the field of world and global history all over Europe. The main instruments to achieve these aims are:


  • to regularly organise a European Congress on themes of World and Global History.
  • to publish with its periodicals 'Comparativ' and 'Connections' and through other forms ongoing efforts in the research of global linkages in a historical perspective.
  • to offer administrative help for bi- and multilateral cooperation in the fields of Masters and PhD programmes as well as facilitating interaction between research centres across Europe and beyond


ENIUGH welcomes all who are engaged in transcending national history and invites for active membership as well as for contribution to its publications and events.
