The responsibilities of the unit Internationalisation and Public Engagement include tasks related to internationalisation, networking and communication matters. We closely cooperate with the African Cluster Centers and other partners of our international network in Africa, Asia and the Americas. The unit is in constant exchange with the University’s international office and the gateway offices.
Over the last forty years, research in African studies at Bayreuth has been developed and undertaken in close cooperation with a large number of universities on the African continent. Thirty African universities have signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with the Institute of African Studies (IAS). Some of these collaborations have been intensified in the context of special programmes.
The Cluster encourages publications with our international partners. Please see an open list of journals and series here.
