    This module examines the development of Britain's policy towards Europe from 1945 to 1963. It focuses in particular on the decision-making of British governments and Britain's international relations during a period which saw Europe divided in the Cold War and Britain attempt to reconcile its foreign policy traditions with the growing power of the European Community. As this subject has become a significant theme in the historiography of post-war British and European history, the module is set within the historiographical debates and exposes students to the most recent research.
