Further Outcomes of the ‘First Berlin Forum on Global Politics’

The Berlin Forum on Global Politics (BFoGP) is pleased to announce that two of the young scholars who presented their research at the ‘First Berlin Forum on Global Politics’ in April, 2013, have gone on to further develop the work they presented at the conference. Leon Schreiber published his paper in a journal publication and Leonard Hessling shared the content of his paper as a Prezi presentation, available online to the general public.

Leon Schreiber, whose research paper was titled Institutions and Social Policy: The Case of the Child Support Grant in South Africa, went on to submit the results of his research to the South African Journal of Political Studies (Politikon). Once reviewed, it was subsequently published on April 14, 2014.

Leonard Hessling, whose research paper was titled Water in the Arab Spring: The Human Rights to Water and Sanitation in the MENA Region’s Transition to Democracy, went on to make further presentations of the results of his research at international conferences, such as the European Conference on African Studies in Lisbon, which took place on June 29, 2013. Since then, he has made the content of his paper available as a Prezi presentation

The Berlin Forum on Global Politics wishes these two young scholars well in their academic endeavours and is pleased to have been able to open spaces for the discussion of their valuable and interesting academic research.

BFoGP at the Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften

The Berlin Forum on Global Politics (BFoGP) took part in the Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften (Long Night of Sciences), an annual event organised by Berlin and Potsdam’s most relevant scientific institutions to showcase the latest research initiatives carried out in the two cities.

The Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften (LNdW) took place on May 10th, 2014. We were at the Henry-Ford Bau in the Freie Universität Berlin, alongside the Center for Global Politics, presenting some of the most topical international political subjects of 2014 and discussing them with visitors.

A full description of our joint event in the LNdW and the program are available here.

For those of you that were unable to attend, our presentation – which focused on our recent efforts at understanding the global implications of the transatlantic free trade agreement – can be read and downloaded here.
