The idea to establish a Global Café as a common activity of the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences and the Potsdam Center for Policy and Management, Master of Public Management, was born in the winter semester 2013/2014. The main objective is to sensitize the members of the Faculty for international issues and to strengthen an inter-cultural atmosphere. The national and international students and staff-members should get a good frame for coming together, for communication and for discussing special topics and issues. Because of the problem of space – a room for a Global Café -, we decided to start at first with a couple of discussions about actual problems in the international political context. These events have met with good response.
