On June 20 and 21, 2024, researchers from various countries gathered in Bern for the workshop “Secret Councils: Comparative Perspectives on Monarchies and Republics, c. 1550-1800”, organized by Debora Heim. The event provided a platform for sharing insights and engaging in stimulating discussions about the political structures and dynamics of monarchies and republics during the early modern period.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all participants for their valuable contributions and the lively debates that made the workshop a success. Your engagement and expertise were truly appreciated, and we look forward to continuing these important conversations in the future.
