A colleague from another school recommended this website to me. History and Policy set themselves the mission of producing “better public policy through an understanding of history by connecting historians, policy makers and the media.” They believe study of the past can offer important lessons for the 21st century.” They provide access to an international network of almost 400 historians with a broad range of expertise, and offer a range of resources for historians, policy makers and journalists. These include policy papers and the excellent opinion pieces.
There really is so much here that it is overwhelming. Have a look, and see what you think. It is a wonderful opportunity to bring yourself into contact with historians at work.
