In recent years, concepts and practices of internationalization have changed rapidly. In the Research Group on internationalization, this change is subjected to critical reflection and it is discussed how internationalization can be rethought with a view to global power asymmetries. The following fields will be the focus of attention:
Internationalization and flight
Which programmes make sense? How can issues of scientific excellence and humanitarian aid be thought together? How can individual voices and experiences be included in order to speak not only about, but with those affected?
Internationalization and scientific freedom
Where are the political-ethical limits of internationalization? With whom can and do we want to cooperate? How do we protect research contacts in countries with declining academic freedom and freedom of expression in the context of global autocratisation tendencies?
Internationalization and Sustainability
How does internationalization change, especially for younger generations, in a time of scarcer resources and also in the context of the climate debate and refraining from travel? How can ideas of more sustainable travel practices be combined with ideas of global networking, knowledge transfer as well as the idea of a global system of knowledge production?
Since the founding of the Research Group Internationalization in 2016, the concept and practice of internationalization in the academic world have undergone extreme change in the wake of a changing "world order" and global power asymmetries - one could even speak of an era of post-internationalization or "second wave internationalism". Within the framework of a one-day ideas workshop on 4 October 2023 in Potsdam, the working group would like to critically reflect on current concepts and practices of internationalization and consider where Die Junge Akademie can set priorities in this important field of science policy. Existing initiatives in Die Junge Akademie and the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, such as the TransEurope network, the exchange with the German Israeli Foundation and the various ALLEA initiatives, as well as existing reflections on diversity and sustainability, should also be included.
2021: Podcast „Book Cultures“
Book Cultures to listen to: As part of the Leipzig Book Fair 2019, the RG Internationalisation organised the panel discussion "Book Cultures".

As part of the event at the Leipzig Book Fair 2019, Jan Hennings (CEU Vienna) and Sebastian Matzner (King's College London) spoke with Michael Hagner (ETH Zurich), Miloš Vec (University of Vienna) and Glenn Most (Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa/University of Chicago) about internationalisation in the academic system and its impact on the process and actors of academic publishing.
2019: Diskussion Auf Der Leipziger Buchmesse
As part of the RG Internationalisation, Jan Hennings and Sebastian Matzner organized a panel discussion on "Book Cultures". Together with guests Michael Hagner (Chair for Science Studies, ETH Zürich), Miloš Vec (Professor of European Law and Constitutional History at the University of Vienna and Permanent Fellow at the Institute of Human Sciences) and Glenn Most (Professor of Greek Philology at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Visiting Professor at the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago and External Scientific Member of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin), they discussed, among other things, to what extent the globalization of supply and visibility of scientific publishers causes changes in the sciences.
Within the framework of a one-day ideas workshop, participants would like to critically reflect on current concepts and practices of internationalization and consider where Die Junge Akademie can set priorities in this important field of science policy.
