• Käte Hamburger Kolleg

The Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research is an interdisciplinary research institute. Nationally and internationally renowned researchers from the social, cultural, natural and economic sciences (fellows) investigate how cultural preconditions, and global regulatory and governance structures can facilitate or hinder global cooperation. The Centre recognises global cooperation as the key to solutions for urgent transnational problems. The four research units deal with the (im)possibility of cooperaton (unit 1), global cultural conflicts and transcultural cooperation (unit 2), the revision of global governance (unit 3) as well as with the paradoxes and perspectives of democratisation (unit 4). The Centre encourages an exchange of knowledge both among the international research fellows, practitioners and with the interested general public. Apart from the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) the University of Duisburg-Essen, the Institute for Development and Peace/Institut für Entwicklung und Frieden (INEF) and the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities/Kulturwissenschaftliches Institut (KWI) are participating partners. The Centre is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany.
