Studium Generale talk by Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kegelmann

On 25 January, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kegelmann will give a lecture as part of the Studium Generale. Many socio-political issues today have a global and local dimension. Global developments have a local impact, while at the same time the local and regional level is an important place for social transformation. Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, puts it this way: "A country is the sum of its communities. If the communities do not function, the country cannot function either."
The aim of this lecture is to describe the boundary between global and local as a creative boundary and to show, using examples, how it is possible to link the global and local levels.
