Global Cooperation Re:search 2012/2013

Annual Report 1

The first-ever annual report of the Duisburg-based Centre for Global Cooperation Research (KHK/GCR21) – the newest of the Käte Hamburger Centres – is made up of three sections: a review of the key issues addressed in the different research-areas (‘Factory Report’ ); selected highlights from the Centre’s various events (‘Cherries on the Cake’); and a detailed directory of the academics engaged in research at the Centre, including their research-topics and publications.

‘From the time the Centre started operations’, says Dr Markus Böckenförde, the Centre’s Executive Director’, our visiting academics have been key in creating a culture of lively and surprisingly diverse debate.  We wanted this to come across in a vivid, reader-friendly way in the annual report.’   The report offers interested readers a more in-depth view of what drives research at the Centre and aims to stimulate interest in tackling the challenges of global cooperation.
