Wednesday, 25 August 2021, Bonn, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany: Premier Armin Laschet opened the North Rhine-Westphalia Academy for International Politics. The Academy is dedicated to the global challenges and structural changes in international politics

in the 21st century. The focus is on promoting scholars from all over the world and their international and interdisciplinary networking. Among others, Nana Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana, Jean Asselborn, Foreign Minister of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the former Afghan Foreign Minister Rangin Dadfar Spanta attended the opening. 

Premier Armin Laschet uttered as per statement below: “On the 75th anniversary of the founding of our state, the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy for International Politics is taking up its work. It brings together scientists from all over the world to jointly design solutions for forward-looking international cooperation. It promotes the exchange between science, politics and society.

The current global challenges show that we need a more strategic foreign policy. That is why the Academy’s goal of thinking internationally and interdisciplinarily about the future of international politics – is more important today than ever before. With the Academy, we are further expanding scientific excellence at the international UN location Bonn and creating a platform that combines international dialogue and interdisciplinary research at the highest level.”

The work of the new institution begins this week with a summer academy on “Artificial Intelligence and International Politics”. Scholars and diplomats from 23 nations will meet at the Petersberg near Bonn from 23 to 26 August 2021 for it. The Academy is also establishing a fellowship programme that will enable outstanding international scholars from a wide range of disciplines to conduct research in Bonn on issues related to the Academy’s thematic area. These range from current developments in international and European relations, international and European law, peace and conflict research, security policy to developments in economic policy, education policy, changes in global climate policy or questions of energy security.

The Academy will work closely with the diverse institutional and research landscape in Bonn and North Rhine-Westphalia and will also discuss its topics in conferences and events. 

The North Rhine-Westphalian Academy for International Politics is an independent academic institution in the legal form of a non-profit limited liability company (GmbH) funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
