The International Students of History Association (ISHA) is a non-governmental, politically neutral international student organization of students of history and is being present on more than 40 universities in 25 European countries. Our roots lie in the year 1989, when the Iron Curtain which had divided Europe for over forty years, began to fall. In this climate of rapid political change, a group of Hungarian students took the initiative and started contacting their colleagues in different countries. They wanted to found an association that would allow students of history to come into contact, cooperate and exchange ideas, something that had not been possible before. On the 9th of May 1990 ISHA was founded in Budapest (Hungary) and our goals have remained the same since then: to facilitate communication and to provide a platform for the exchange of students, both for historians and those of related sciences on an international level. We believe that international perspectives constitute an important part of every student’s education.
