Publication: Building, Shaping, Realizing

In total, seven international Graduate Schools focusing on the SDGs are funded by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). This publication introduces the different research approaches and programs:

„In December 2016, the graduate school was opened to promote scientific work on the role of art in international understanding and conflict resolution. “In order to create peace between people, you must remind them that they share a common culture”, says Dr. Abba Tijani, project director at the University of Maiduguri.“The cooperation aims at sustainably strengthening not only North-South exchange but also inner-African dialogue”, explains Professor Raimund Vogels, project partner at the University of Hildesheim. “We also want knowledge to be generated within the countries them-selves. The future experts will be trained locally and, after earning their doctorates, can contribute to social change in their countries.” (Page 14)
