As part of the cooperation between the universities, the Einstein Center (Hebrew University), Berlin Graduate School for Transnational Studies BTS (supported by Freie Universität, Hertie School of Governance, and the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin), and the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) convened the "Global Order: Continuity or Change?" workshop in Jerusalem specifically for doctoral candidates. Similar events are now planned annually, offering young researchers an opportunity to discuss their work and network with scholars from a number of other countries.
In early November, an event for alumni and friends of Freie Universität was held for the first time in Jerusalem in front of an audience of around 70 guests. The event included a presentation of Promoting Democracy and the Rule of Law: European and American Strategies, a book jointly published by Prof. Dr. Thomas Risse and Prof. Dr. Tanja Börzel of Freie Universität and Prof. Amichai Magen from the Shalem Center research institute in Jerusalem. Speaking after the presentation, Shimon Stein, former Israeli ambassador to Germany, underscored the importance of such academic cooperation for international relations. The event was organized by the Shalem Center and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
