The purpose of these educational activities is to promote democracy and sustainability.

  • Interdisciplinary peace and conflict research as the basis for human rights-oriented, transformative education

Ceremonial opening of the Peace Institute on January 23, 2020.

The new Peace Institute Freiburg was inaugurated on Friday, January 24, 2020, with a ceremony attended by more than 220 guests from science, politics, church organisations, and diverse fields of practice. This institute of the Protestant University of Applied Sciences Freiburg will set a new focal point for peace research. With its already cutting-edge interdisciplinary research in the social field, the university has thus significantly expanded its broad thematic portfolio.
