In a time of two global wars, when polarisation, economic crises and hostility towards Israel are dividing societies, the academy is urged to respond. How have our perspectives on transregional spaces changed since the beginning of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine? How are concepts of resilience changing? And how does transregional research react to this? In this interdisciplinary panel, we will focus on perspectives from the Global South on war and conflict, highlight their potential for future discussion and contextualise historically the developments in Eastern Europe in relation to developments on the African continent.


This event is a cooperation between the ScienceCampus Eastern Europe – Global Area and ReCentGlobe Leipzig.
