This event represents a special departure from our regular research colloquium programme. Centre Fellow Gemma Bird will be presenting her project to the 'Mittagsforum' of the Institute for Political Science at the University of Duisburg-Essen. In the 'Mittagsforum', staff members of the institute as well as external guests present planned, ongoing and completed research projects and put them up for discussion. The contributions have a theme that changes from semester to semester. The sessions are organized and led by Prof. Dr. Michael Kaeding and Prof. Dr. Theresa Reinold of the Institute of Political Science, University of Duisburg-Essen.

You can find more information, as well as the programme for the IfP's Mittagsforum here.
