During World War I several countries struggled to maintain their neutrality. In an attempt to keep a balance between the battling parties, they had different interpretations of the concept of neutrality with both political, economic, legal and cultural connotations. This conference will explicitly focus on the confrontation between neutrality and the reality of an existence on the edge of catastrophe. We explicitly want to question the similarities and differences between the experiences of different neutral countries, the interaction between belligerents and neutrals; the way the war changed the neutrals and, in turn, how they changed the war.
