The M.S. Merian – R.Tagore International Centre for Advanced Studies ‘Metamorphoses of the Political’ (ICAS:MP) is one of the ‘Maria Sibylla Merian Centres’ funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with the aim of strengthening scientific collaboration between Germany and one or more countries in different regions. In addition to ICAS:MP, three other Merian Centers are already established:

Center for Advanced Latin American Studies (CALAS, Mexico)

Maria Sibylla Merian Centre Conviviality-Inequality in Latin America (Mecila, Brazil)

Maria Sibylla Merian Institute for Advanced Studies in Africa (MIASA, Ghana)

The setting up of the Merian Centres in Latin America, Asia and Africa gives us a unique opportunity to think of our historical and contemporary experience and knowledge formations in comparative and cross-cultural perspective.

This public knowledge exchange event has two panel discussions on ‘Peace, Violence, and Living Together’ and ‘Democracy, Development, Inequality’, designed to explore both difference and common ground and plan future collaboration.
