My dissertation examines the development and internationalization of criminal police forces, charged with investigating crimes such as murder, theft, and fraud, in Europe from the late 19th to the mid-20th centuries. The detectives of these forces developed a professional identity based around common aspirations and practices reaching across European borders. While working at the IWM, I will be researching the International Criminal Police Commission (now known as Interpol), an organization founded in Vienna in 1923 to coordinate the activities of various national forces.
