Abstract [en]

This article summarizes the findings of the "History beyond borders: The international history textbook revision, 1919-2009" project, which explored the internationalization of history education. The different studies within the project focused on ideas of peace education, relations between different revisioning projects, the interaction between different historical cultures, and the relation between guidelines from international organizations and national curricula and syllabi. The findings indicate that there were pronounced connections between peace associations and history teaching, and that the national perspective was built in to methods of internationalization. The process of implementation was extended throughout the twentieth century. The different arenas, projects and organizations that engaged in the process were also connected in the making of a European educational space which they both influenced, and were influenced by.
