Osteuropa-Institut | Center for Global Politics
The Center for Global Politics (CGP), which counts with over 800 alumni from over 25 countries across the world, will offer a series of interactive panels in order to present and to discuss with visitors some of the most topical international political subjects of 2014.
The subjects of these panels include:
- the tools provided by the CGP's Alumni Network and Alumni Association: i.e., how alumni provided live and on-the-ground information and analyses during the protests in Turkey and the massive displacement of refugees from Syria into Jordan, and the 2013 alumni workshop on digital citizenship and education;
- the initiatives of the Berlin Forum on Global Politics (a non-profit founded by doctoral candidates of the CGP): i.e., its 2013 international conference, and its 2013 publication and efforts throughout 2014 to offer information to civil society on the transatlantic free trade agreement;
- individual research presentations and their implications: i.e., the role of emerging powers in development assistance to Africa; transborder migration in the China-Central Asia-Russia region; the global politics of surveillance and securitization of information and communications technologies;
- and more!
Please do join us and enjoy the opportunity to inquire in detail about what concerns and interests you the most about global politics.
