Regions in the world
Within communities and across borders we can always identify differences. Nevertheless regions also have a lot of things in common; a mutual past, cultural similarities, a certain political climate or economical dependencies. Within the Faculty of Arts some regions in the world are studied more closely. Specific knowledge combined with a broad perspective on similarities can give us a cleare view on actual global issues . Useful for mutual understanding and international relations.
