The project will limit itself to the three political concepts of fatherland, liberty and citizenship. The exploration of the comparative dimension and the international interaction of these concepts will be limited to the three major and most important European countries surrounding the Dutch Republic, that is England, France and Germany or, to be precise, the Holy Roman Empire and will focus on the early-modern period from 1550 till 1850. The project will take the shape of three academic meetings, organized by respectively the Huizinga Institute in Amsterdam, the Max-Planck-Institut für Geschichte in Göttingen and the European University Institute in Florence and will result in a volume of essays entitled Dutch Political Concepts: Comparative and International Perspectives. The editors of this volume will be the two Dutch initiators of this project, Karin Tilmans and Wyger Velema
