With such a rich history and noteworthy empire, the study of Britain both past and present is an excellent complement to other CSI courses.

Courses will look at important events such as the Great Depression, Industrialisation, as well as the more recent financial crash to look at why these events occur and how they are resolved.

History of Economics I: This course will look at the history of economics from the Renaissance period including Machiavelli up until Industrialisation. Delegates will learn about the foundations of economics from a historical context and how these original theories were applied. In addition, the evolution of economics over these centuries will be studied in order for delegates to understand how it has changed.

History of Economics II: Following on from Economics I, this course will analyse the development of economics from industrialisation until post World War II and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Delegates will look at the development of the modern economic system and how it has been adopted globally as well as identifying how historical events have impacted on economics.

800 Years of Magna Carta: The Magna Carta has been established as one of the most eminent documents throughout world history and recently celebrated its 800th anniversary. This course provides participants with essential knowledge about the issue of the grant, its implications and effect on history by looking at more modern examples of declarations, and treaties such as the American Declaration of Independence.

davidjohnsonDr David Johnson

Dr David Johnson works in St. Peter’s College, university of Oxford. He has an unusual (though by no means unique) range of academic interests which include medieval history, especially administrative history, and information management and retrieval. These interests are reflected in the fact that he is currently both a member of the British Academy’s Committee on Episcopal Acta, as well as Honorary Secretary of the Bliss Classification Association, and that he has pursued a joint career in history and academic librarianship in Oxford. His publications include an edition of the acta of Bishop William of Sainte-Mère-Église, executor on behalf of Pope Innocent III for the Interdict which Innocent imposed on England, and one of the chief negotiators between the Pope and King John in attempts to resolve the disputes between king and church. Among other projects, he is currently preparing for publication a collection of legal documents from the reigns of John and his brother, Richard Lionheart.
