Knowledge Dissemination into society and Politics

In its interdisciplinary bridging function between academia, politics and society, the Regional Center for Peace and Conflict Research provides target group-specific transfer of peace and conflict research expertise into different fields of practice.

Our network members from the Peace City Augsburg are part of several local initiatives, including the annual Peace Summer School Augsburg, a project for the trialogical transfer of conflict expertise and a project on postcolonial perspectives on the Peace City.

In October 2022, our Bayreuthian members, within the new network for Peace and Conflict Research@UBT, initiated the lecture series Bayreuth Peace Talks. Alternating between lectures on campus and in the Bayreuth city center, our speakers will provide insights for both broad academic audiences as well as the general public.
