The Paris Peace Conference of 1919 marks a key moment in the attempt to create a peaceful international society in which men and women would live their own lives in safety and freedom from coercion. In this celebration of one hundred years since the Treaty of Versailles, which aspired to put an end to the ‘war that would end all wars’, we consider the ideals and realities which were negotiated during the six months in Paris that changed the world.
