The Global South Studies Center (GSSC) coordinates global, interdisciplinary research at the University of Cologne focusing on currently highly relevant topics such as migration, sustainability and infrastructures in Africa, Asia and Latin America. A particular focus lies on human-environment relations. Besides providing the supportive structure for scientific projects, the GSSC also makes research results accessible not only to an academic audience but also to the broader public.
