This talk will consider the rise and development of multinational enterprise (MNE) from the beginning of the twentieth century. Whilst the chronological focus will be on the 1930s, issues confronting the contemporary world will also be discussed. In some cases, such as taxation, the history of the relationship between the nation state and MNE reveals that interests do not always coincide; in other cases, such as trading with potential enemy powers, interests may conflict, with grave consequences.

His research interest traverse the fields of cultural heritage (contested/conflicted heritage, the memorialisation of war), and twentieth century history (interaction of foreign policy, international business and European dictatorships).

He has led several major, European research projects, and is a member of several national and international advisory boards and similar bodies.
