In three interconnected research areas, scholars focusing on Europe, Asia and Africa develop concepts and methods to reveal Europe’s global entanglements in the fields of society and history, law and economy. A thematic focus is not prescribed, but projects are conceptually bound to a global research on Europe.

While suitable projects can be assigned to the mentioned research areas, they go beyond the borders of established disciplines and thus allow for a sustainable contribution to a thematic rearrangement of familiar knowledge bases. The Institute for European Global Studies provides interdisciplinary competencies and a modern research infrastructure on all levels of individual or programme research as well as for existing or intended third party funded projects.

Requests for project hosting can be submitted to europa(at) They should include a research proposal that is no longer than 3 pages.
