DAAD position paper on Germany’s future external academic policy

DAAD (October 2021). Mehr Verantwortung wagen in einer global vernetzten Welt. DAAD. Bonn, Germany. 


In view of the upcoming coalition negotiations in Germany, the DAAD has presented a position paper that puts forward stimuli for Germany’s External Academic Policy. The paper identifies ten points for a successful, practically oriented External Academic Policy within a global community of responsibility. The focus of the paper is on the expansion of academic cooperation with all liberal democratic states worldwide as well as the rather difficult negotiation processes with partner institutions in increasingly authoritarian states. Particular attention is paid to China, stating that the aim should be to establish partnership-based exchange with Chinese institutions, their scholars, and students.
