Cooperation with the Global South
The Department Cooperation with the Global South at the International Office of the University of Cologne is in charge of facilitating and enhancing the exchanges with academic partners in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. The services offered by this department range from administrative and strategic support for the implementation and management of contacts in these regions, to networking and facilitating partnerships.
Our two liaison offices: the University of Cologne – China NRW Office in Beijing and the University of Cologne Office in India are also fundamental players in guaranteeing institutionalised and improved networking to international universities and other research partners. We also collaborate closely with the Centres for International Cooperation (ZIBs) at the faculties of the University of Cologne and the Global South Studies Centre in the same University.
