Patrick Milton is a historian of early modern Europe with a focus on the political and constitutional history of the Holy Roman Empire, and European international relations and geopolitics. He is working on the ‘Westphalia for the Middle East’ project at the Forum on Geopolitics of the Department of Politics and International Studies. By using the historical experiences of the Thirty Years War and the Peace of Westphalia (1648) as a source of inspiration, the project seeks to draw lessons for the benefit of peacemaking in today’s Middle East. Patrick completed his undergraduate studies and his PhD in History at Peterhouse, and his Masters in International Relations at the University of Warwick. He took up appointments at Freie Universität Berlin before returning to Peterhouse as a Research Fellow in 2018.
