The Military Welfare History Network (MWHN) brings together historians and social scientists who research welfare, care and medical provisions relating to armed forces personnel and their families in and across all geographical and cultural spaces, chronologies and thematic areas, with a view to promoting their research, expanding their networks and developing new and exciting collaborations.

This network provides a networking and dissemination platform for scholars who are research active in military welfare history. Something that the network says has heretofore been lacking, despite the existence of several societies and networks that focus on the research of war or more specifically veterans and their families.

The focus of the network will be all armed forces, both regular and irregular, including armies, navies, air forces, militias and paramilitary formations. There is also work focused on topics related to veterans.

The network has an international reach, including researchers from all over the world. The above information is taken from the network’s website. Please visit the website to find out more about the research of the MWHN.
