Conflict along religious fault lines is common around the world (Northern Ireland, Syria, Pakistan etc.). In the 18th century, four decades of such war placed Utrecht centre stage during two years of negotiations that radically changed the relations between states and peoples in Europe and around the globe. Thereafter, common economic and political interests were supposed to be a means of achieving lasting peace. From  the origins of international law to colonial regimes, emeritus Prof. Kees Roelofsen (UU) will explore what the world has inherited from the  Treaty of Utrecht (1713). To what extent does the present day resemble that of the 18th century? What could the Treaty of Utrecht  mean for peace and stability in the modern day global village?
