Dr David Onnekink (History of International Relations) has received a NIAS-grant for The Dutch in the Early Modern World: The Rise and Fall of a Global Power.

The grant is tenable from 1 September until 22 December 2016 and enables him to work on a book manuscript at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS) in Amsterdam. The project is undertaken jointly with Dr Gijs Rommelse (Dr. Ernst Crone Fellow at the Scheepvaartmuseum).

The Dutch in the Early Modern World: The Rise and Fall of a Global Power

The purpose of this book project is to rethink the position of the Dutch Republic in the world in the early modern age and to investigate long-term 'traditions' in Dutch foreign policy. It will do so by paying attention to Dutch foreign policy both within Europe as well as in the overseas world. Moreover, it will regard politics in the context of Dutch culture and society. The book will be published in 2018 by Cambridge University Press.
