The aim of the Journal is to overcome national boundaries thematically. Edited by historians from different countries, it is a response to advancing internationalisation, which is taking place in thinking and writing about history as much as anywhere else. The Journal sees itself as a forum for historians all over the world who share a common interest in the history of Europe. With this aim in mind, the journal is governed by the following principles:
1. Every volume contains a “Forum”, in which at least one longer contribution discusses general problems and questions of modern European history.
2. Every volume is devoted to one broad topic area, which covers at least three countries considerably moving beyond the frequent three-nation comparison between Germany, France and England. Following the end of the East-West dichotomy, one of the main aims of the journal is to bring the academic traditions of eastern and western Europe closer together.
3. The articles are published in three languages: English, French and German.
4. The journal concentrates on the last three centuries. Topics from the Early Modern period or those spanning different epochs are by no means excluded.
5. The journal is open to all methodological and theoretical approaches.
6. The journal does not subscribe to any particular or programmatic concept of “Europe”. The European orientation is thus not designed to be merely Eurocentric; on the contrary, it emphatically includes comparison with the non-European world in a global perspective.
