Summer Term 2021 Lecture Series:
"Interdisciplinary Forum: Peace & Sustainability"

With a lecture series in the summer term 2021, we want to foster a debate on the topics of sustainability and peace research from different disciplinary perspectives and intend to create a broad interdisciplinary dialogue on issues of scientific and public relevance. We want to provide an overview about the diversity of research in the fields of sustainability and peace research at the University of Cologne and embed these research activities in a larger context of current social, ecological and economic trends. The presentations themselves are designed to provide both a general idea about current research and debates, yet should also go beyond disciplinary boundaries and directly address the expertise of colleagues from other disciplines.

Every Monday, 17:45
All discussions are held through Zoom: 979 3460 7986, Passcode: Forum-I
All material and a discussion forum are provided through ILIAS.
If you need CPs, please register via KLIPS number 14756.8005.
