Working Groups

Arab and German Education

Education has become part of the international market economy - schools and universities compete worldwide. To be competitive, early childhood education is the foundation. In Germany, early childhood education is often approached in the context of social inequalities, whereas in the Arab world, the improvement of school and university education is prioritized. The working group also compares the scientific awareness of school children and major challenges of young scholars in the academic landscapes. By mapping the current situation in different regions and creating a network for knowledge exchange, the group intends to identify best practices to increase the capacity of emerging students and scholars.
