Submodule 1b: “Interaction and Knowledge in the Pacific Region: Entanglements and Disentanglements”

In the second research group the GHI Moscow, the GHI Washington with its Pacific Regional Office Berkeley, the German Institute for Japanese Studies (DIJ) in Tokyo with its research group in Singapore and the China Branch Office in Peking are working together on “Interaction and Knowledge in the Pacific Region: Entanglements and Disentanglements”. Other external partners are the National University of Singapore, the Beijing Foreign Studies University, the University of California, Berkeley, the École Française d’Extrême Orient, the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Seoul, the Hokkaido University and the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich. A partnership with the East West Centre in Honolulu is being pursued too.

The research group’s study focuses in particular on the two theme areas of “Mobilities in the Pacific Region” and “Environment, Climate and Energy in the Pacific Region“. As this involves cross-border phenomena, a transnationally oriented research group is especially suited for analysing these aspects. Reasons for choosing the Pacific as a subject of research include the rapid developments – compared to the Atlantic – in this region, which has a globally significant future.
