Public Lectures 2012

Time: year-round series
Place: St. Petersburg, various faculties at St. Petersburg State University
Participants: lecturers, researchers and PhD students in St. Petersburg

The CGES public lecture series emphasises on current political, social, economic, and societal problems and challenges in Germany and wider Europe. With this series of public lectures, the CGES aims at both bringing current research into the multidisciplinary academic discussion and breaking down current research questions and results for a wider audience, including students, postdoctoral fellows, and interested members of the public. This initiative gives German scholars the opportunity to present their research to and discuss it with Russian colleagues, while it gives the Russian audience an insight into current academic work being undertaken in Germany in the social sciences.
