Center for Global Politics

The Center for Global Politics (CGP) unites four programs organized by Prof. Dr. Klaus Segbers at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of Freie Universität Berlin. These programs enable students worldwide to pursue studies or continuing education at the FU and its partners. Oriented towards the search for answers to global questions of the 21st century, the Center for Global Politics is designed for professionals and young leaders who wish to deepen their understanding of these global challenges and their political, economic and social causes and impacts. The unique programs explore international relations in Europe, including politics, economics, intercultural communication, migration, conflict management and international security.
