The network "Hierarchies" is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany (BMBF). It is a collaborative network between the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute (ABI) Freiburg, the Center for Conflict Studies at the Philipps University Marburg, the University of Bayreuth and the University of Erfurt. The network investigates how historically formed postcolonial hierarchies manifest themselves in contemporary conflict dynamics and what implications this has for sustainable conflict transformation. The project seeks to create dialogic platforms for scholars and partner institutions from the Global North and Global South to address these questions in collaborative formats.
