Keywords:Colegio de España, Cité Universitaire, League of Nations, University education, Educational modernity, International policy
AbstractThis study analyses the origins of the Cité Universitaire, Paris, based on the intellectual and educational cooperation of the League of Nations and French government after the First World War. It was in this context that the construction of the Colegio de España began in 1929. This Institution strengthened international relations between both countries and enabled Spanish researchers, artists and intellectuals of the time, to be in contact with the scientific, artistic and cultural advances in France and Europe. The aim of this article is solely to highlight and try to recover a part (the origins) of the political, cultural and educational history of these institutions.
