Centre for Global Cooperation Research, Duisburg-Essen (KHK/GCR21)
University of Duisburg-Essen
The Centre for Global Cooperation Research at the University of Duisburg-Essen is one of ten Käte Hamburger Kollegs sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Established in 2012, the Centre is an interdisciplinary and international learning community that seeks to enhance understanding of the possibilities and limits of global cooperation and to explore new options for global public policy.
The working language at the Centre is English.
Over the next funding period (2018-2023) the Centre’s research and fellowships reorganized around four broad themes: pathways and mechanisms of global cooperation; global cooperation and polycentric governance; critique, justification and legitimacy in global cooperation; and global cooperation among plural conceptions of world order. Empirical research on these themes will focus especially on climate change, digital spaces, migration, and peacebuilding.
