Kiran Klaus Patel studies the history of the twentieth century from an international-comparative perspective. He is an influential contributor to academic and social debates. For example, in his book The new deal: A global history, he demonstrated that the USA’s social policy of the 1930s was not unique but in fact based in part on the welfare policy of Nazi Germany. His work on the history of European integration highlights the meaning and significance of European values in today’s world. Patel is a highly sought-after speaker known for his elegant contributions to debates at international conferences.
