"The Kindness of Strangers": Hitler, Beveridge and the origins of the Academic Assistance Council

Professor Mick Cox, Director of LSE Ideas, outlines how and why William Beveridge set up the Academic Assistance Council in 1933 to help fellow academics fleeing totalitarianism in Nazi Germany and elsewhere.


Professor Michael Cox was appointed to a Chair at the LSE in 2002, having previously held positions in the UK at The Queen's University of Belfast and the Department of International Politics, Aberystwyth. He helped establish the Cold War Studies Centre at the LSE in 2004 and later co-founded LSE IDEAS in 2008.

Professor Cox has lectured to universities world-wide as well as to several government bodies and many private companies. He has also served as Chair of the United States Discussion Group at Chatham House, as Senior Fellow at the Nobel Institute in Oslo; as Visiting Professor at the Centre for Defence and Strategic Studies in Canberra, Australia, and as Chair of the European Consortium for Political Research.
