Conference report: Towards an Alternative History of Banking Internationalisation

How did Swiss banks expand their activities on an international scale during the 20th century? The workshop «Towards an Alternative History of Banking Internationalisation: Switzerland and Global Networks (19th-20th Centuries)» held at the University of Lausanne in December 2022, attempted to find new approaches to answer this question.

In his conference report, Jamieson G. Myles (Oxford) summarizes the research results presented by the speakers, and concludes that they illustrate "the huge potential of approaching the history of bank internationalisation by focusing on hitherto neglected network components, be they institutional or interpersonal."
