KHK/GCR21

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 are organized 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.





Fellowships 2018–2019

In the period March 2018–February 2019 we invite fellowship applications from across the humanities and social sciences (including psychology, law and economics) in relation to the first two main themes, as detailed below. Preference is for fellowships of twelve
months, but shorter periods will also be considered. We particularly encourage female researchers and scholars from the Global South to apply. Applications from scholars at risk are welcome.



Themes 2018–2019

The Centre’s work in the first year of its second funding period will focus on the themes ‘Pathways and Mechanisms of Global Cooperation’ and ‘Global Cooperation and Polycentric Governance’. We especially invite fellowship applications that address these themes,
as described below. In addition, empirical focus on climate change, digital spaces, migration, or peacebuilding is particularly welcome.
