Change and new ramifications raise new questions and often require new perspectives. Especially in times of crisis and transformation, it helps to look beyond the horizon. On the one hand, we cannot assume to find contained (national) solutions for considerable problems on our own. On the other hand, joint approaches produce further social and cultural challenges. This is true for major difficulties of the last 20 years as much as for future developments, as one can recognise for instance in the context of the corona pandemic. We have invited experts from the Interdisciplinary Centre for Baltic Sea Region Research to reflect their research questions in the context of the pandemic in the Baltic Sea Region and look for answers and further questions.
The Greifswald experts in Baltic Sea region research are regularly asked to comment on controversies, background reports and statements. A selection of the most recent contributions by Greifswald IFZO scientists in print, radio and digital media can be found below.
