As part of Freie Universität Berlin’s International Week 2016, the event will shine a light on the pressing issue of academic cooperation in the context of political conflict. The panel discussion debates Freie Universität Berlin’s international presence with liaison offices in countries affected by political transformation. It draws attention to the risks of international academic cooperation, but also to the social responsibility of universities to support scholars working in conflict zones or in countries with limited academic freedom. How does conflict impact the internationalization strategy of Freie Universität Berlin? How can cooperation be sustained in times of conflict?
