FCO Historians: Online Publications


The FCO Historians provide a long-term, policy-relevant perspective on international issues, and contribute to the collective knowledge and understanding of British foreign policy.

To support this function, the team released a series of papers, seminars and documents published over the course of the last 25 years on ISSUU in May 2013.

Taken together, these documents cover a wide range of historical subjects in a variety of different formats, offering a glimpse into the history and relationships that have helped shape British international relations in the 20th century and beyond: History Notes examines subjects from Nazi gold to the slave trade; Occasional Papers record lectures given in the FCO or research papers written by the FCO Historians; Documents from the Archives reproduce original documents on specific topics from the Foreign Office archives and Witness Seminars contain oral testimony given by FCO alumni; along with other miscellaneous publications.
