The Zimmern List - Alfred Eckhard Zimmern - Netflix

Sir Alfred Eckhard Zimmern (1879–1957) was a British classical scholar and historian, and political scientist writing on international relations. His book The Third British Empire was among the first to apply the expression “British Commonwealth” to the British Empire. He is also credited with the phrase “welfare state”, (It was made popular a few years later by William Temple.)

He has been classified as a utopian and idealist thinker on international relations. He is cited often, in this perspective, in E. H. Carr's The Twenty Years' Crisis (1939); Carr and Zimmern are characterised as at opposite ends of the theoretical and political spectrum. He contributed to the founding of both the League of Nations Society, and UNESCO. He was Deputy Director of the Institute for Intellectual Co-operation, in Paris, in the mid-1920s; after tension with the Director, the French historian Julien Luchaire, both left. He was nominated in 1947 for the Nobel Peace Prize, in connection with his UNESCO work. Within UK politics, Zimmern joined the Labour Party in 1924, and was Labour candidate for Carnarvon Boroughs against David Lloyd George in the 1924 general election. A close friend of Ramsay MacDonald, Zimmern followed him in 1931 when MacDonald moved to head a National Government; he became an active member of the National Labour Organisation and frequently wrote articles for its journal, the News-Letter. Zimmern was one of five writers who contributed to a book “Towards a National Policy: being a National Labour Contribution” in April 1935. He died at Avon, Connecticut on 24 November 1957.
