32nd Forum on Global Issues, 7 May 2013
The 32nd Forum on Global Issues, organised by the Federal Foreign Office in cooperation with SEF and INEF, will take place on 7 May 2013 in Berlin. Launched back in 1999, the forum addresses a wide range of global challenges and brings together state and non-state actors in international politics to discuss and exchange views.
Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research is an interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Duisburg-Essen. The Centre is the tenth and the last Käte Hamburger Kolleg supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany.
The Centre recognises global cooperation as the key to solutions for urgent transnational problems. We propose an interdisciplinary framework that reflects how cultural premises and dynamics of emerging global governance could translate into global cooperation. We encourage an exchange of knowledge both among our international research fellows, practitioners and with the interested general public.
