In the context of this joint project, the Institute’s existing contacts in the Asia-Pacific region are consolidated into a network and intensified. Alongside the international research work in workshops, support for beginning researchers, as well as knowledge transfer in threshold and developing countries, also stands at the forefront. The visibility and durability of these activities will be documented in academic publications. In tandem with UNESCO and the University of Hamburg, the National Law University in Delhi, India, and the law faculty of the University of Haifa as well as the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation in Bangkok, Thailand, are supporting these projects. We are thus looking to extend our international partnerships. Since October 2013, researchers and students from Hamburg, Delhi and Haifa had the opportunity to exchange ideas on current questions of information and communications law from intercultural viewpoints.
