In the decades around 1900 arised numerous international associations that shaped the processes of political and societal decision making in the European national states. The organizations constituted in fact arenas of the formation of new, transnational elites (political, scientific, religious…). In their meetings the elites discussed political and social problems appearing with industrialization, the formation of world economy and the internationalization since the 1880s, attracting the attention of national governments. The new elites acted in a field characterized by dynamic relations of international associations and national states. In the elites ‘conception’ of the world the nation played still a crucial role; internationalism and nationalism were intimately linked in the epoch before the First World War. This circumstance was quite relevant for the concrete ideas and the reform projects of the international elites and as well for the forms of sociability of the transnational meetings and congresses.
