FELLOWS

To achieve our strategic objectives, we believe it is important among other things to engage in exchange with scientists, scholars and experienced practitioners. Stiftung Mercator und some of its partner organizations and project partners therefore support experts pursuing intensive research and work on our themes in a wide variety of disciplines. Fellows discuss their ideas and positions with our partner organizations and with our staff in both academic discourse and public debate. This gives rise to a constructive dialogue that generates prospects and provides new impetus.
