We are delighted to announce a new column in Der Tagesspiegel, authored by our President, Professor Amrita Narlikar. The column is called “Globale Gedanken” – literally “Global Thoughts” – first and foremost because its subject matter deals with global political and economic developments. In good measure, the column will tackle questions directly deriving from Amrita’s research expertise: multilateralism, trade, globalisation, and so forth. Sometimes she will also offer her personal reflections on more general issues, e.g. being an international academic in Germany, the role of women in German academia, the exchange between theory and practice. And on some rare occasions, she will comment on other things that matter globally – or should do anyway.
Amrita's first contribution to the column was published online in Tagesspiegel Causa on 6 May, and also came out in print on 11 May. It outlines the reasoning and motivation behind “Globale Gedanken” and also focuses specifically on Germany’s role in the UN Security Council. See now Amrita's latest analysis on Modi (II) and India after the elections. You can access this – and future contributions – via this link.
