EUROCLIO, the European Association of History Educators, was established in 1992 on request of the Council of Europe to build bridges between history education professionals from all parts of the then recently reunited Europe. EUROCLIO started as an umbrella organisation gathering 14 Associations from 14 predominantly Western countries and grew to become a far-reaching network of 44 member Associations and 15 associated members from 52 countries 20 years later.
