Work at the newly establushed Point Alpha Institute at Geisa, Thuringia will start on May 3, 2022 with an inaugural event and a kick off workshop on the current Ukraine situation on May 4, 2022. Please find more information here (in German).
On June 17, 2021, we have established an association (Verein) to launch the Point Alpha Research Institite on the former inner-German border between Hessen and Thuringia. The Institute will be run as a collaboration between Fulda University of Applied Sciences and University of Erfurt and be funded by the Federal State of Thuringia. Work will address Cold War Studies, Border Studies, and questions of Democracy in a Global Order.
On April 29, 2021, I have been appointed Professor in Political Science (Politics of Human Rights) at Fulda University of Applied Sciences. I fear that I cannot remember the exact wording, but I had to say “I swear”. Photo with Präsident Prof. Dr. Karim Khakzar and Dean Prof. Dr. Hans-Joachim Reinhard.
