This study shows how the international efforts for reforming history teaching, by the League of Nations, UNESCO and the Council of Europe, were both neglected and implemented, prior to and after the Second World War. International intentions towards international understanding and away from nationalism, were transferred, interpreted and also influenced by teachers’ and students’ views of history. International understanding and non-European history–but not intercultural history–became a dominant line in the Swedish curriculum in a complex top-down and bottom-up process.
