Historizing international organizations and their communication – institutions, practices, changes
The Thematic Section focuses on a topic that has thus far received little attention from communication and media researchers: the history of international organizations and their communication. Since the second half of the 19th century, for numerous and diverse areas of social life, globally active international organizations of varying degrees of institutionalization and scope, both non-governmental and intergovernmental, have been founded and have dedicated themselves to the global challenges of the first modern age (Herren, 2009). The most famous of these is certainly the League of Nations, which was established in 1919 as the predecessor institution of the United Nations.
