Political Science and International Relations education equips students with the knowledge and tools to understand human behaviors, political events and international affairs. Under rapidly intensifying globalization in the past decades, international affairs influence every country and the life of every individual more than ever before in our history.
In response to these needs, this project aims to facilitate the development of political science and international relations education between regional partners in Southeast Asia. Facilitated by FUB, the regional partners will review critically the current political science and international relations curricula in four curriculum development workshops. Young professionals from our regional partners will gain knowledge on teaching skills and methods through a shadowing program. Retired professors from Germany will be sent to teach and share their education experience with students and professionals in the region. Through this project, cooperation between FUB and the partner institutions will be enhanced. Ties and connection among the regional partners in Southeast Asia will also be strengthened.

In this year’s Global Politics Workshop in Ukraine, twenty young researchers from such diverse countries like, for example, Ukraine, Poland and Germany gathered to discuss current trends and developments in International Relations. Among the highlights: A meeting with Lviv’s mayor, Andriy Sadovyi, a panel discussion on the future of the Ukraine and a Q&A with volunteers working for different Ukrainian NGOs.
