Co-founder of InIIS and one of the forebearers of peace and conflict studies in post-World War II Germany.
Dieter Senghaas Lectures
With this lecture series, the Institute of Intercultural and International Studies and the Landeszentrale für Politische Bildung Bremen pay tribute to the life and work of the internationally renowned peace and conflict researcher Dieter Senghaas, who has taught at the University of Bremen since 1978 and is a co-founder of InIIS. With the "civilizational hexagon" he developed, which focuses on the possibilities of peaceful development in and between societies, he created a paradigm that has made it into German students' high school graduation assignments and into the most important textbooks on international relations. His book "Zivilisierung wider Willen," about the long and difficult process of building sustainable peace in Europe, has been translated into numerous languages, including Chinese, Arabic, and Korean. His body of work includes 35 books authored by him, as well as 35 other books in which he has participated as editor or co-author.
