Leadership for Syria - Rebuild Palmyra - why?

Introduction: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Seibel
Lecture: Prof. Dr. Stefan Hauser

Educating the future leaders of Syria: The “Leadership for Syria” programme coordinated by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers Syrian students and doctoral researchers a chance to continue their education at a German university in order to prepare for the future task of rebuilding Syria. The University of Konstanz hosts the socio-political accompanying programme, which is led by Professor Wolfgang Seibel and organised by the Academy for Advanced Studies at the University of Konstanz (AWW). The programme enters its final phase in the last week of July 2017: during the first two stages, the main focus was laid on promoting a democratic understanding of society and on discussing sustainable economic policies. The third and final part of the programme, which takes place from 28 until 30 July 2017, deals with the personal challenges that the approximately 200 Syrian participants are likely to face.
