KHK Duisburg-Essen: Centre for Global Cooperation Research
The Käte Hamburger Centre "Centre for Global Cooperation Research" is an interdisciplinary centre conducting research into global cooperation. It examines the challenges and opportunities of global cooperation in a culturally diverse global society defined not least by the rise of new regional and global powers. Based on exemplary problem areas the Centre asks how global governance can be organised in view of increasing political and cultural differentiation set against problems that are worldwide in scope.

Raum zu denken (‘Room to think’) is manifest at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg in Duisburg. From the first day, the team provides the perfect mix of structure and freedom to do our work. With support facilitating in-house dialogues and public conferences, and the freedom to innovatively problem solve with like-minded colleagues, the fellowship experience at KHK-Duisburg provides the respite reboot that cannot but fortify our contributions to global society.

The Käte Hamburger Kolleg/Centre for Global Cooperation Research offers a wonderful space for fellows to think, deliberate, present and publish. It is remarkable that a young research centre could have such transformational intellectual impact, especially for young academics, more so those visiting from developing countries. What has made this possible, is the incredible friendly environment, continuous pastoral support, and unrestricted freedom accorded to fellows. These factors converged perfectly to make my fellowship profoundly rewarding.
