Founded in April 2007, the programme offers an interdisciplinary research and educational environment. It includes the areas of international and inter-societal relations, politics and globalisation, political economy, social, business and labour law as well as migration and decent work. The second funding period started in 2011 with a thematic focus on analysing the social and ecological problems in north-south relations.

Since 2011 it furthermore receives financial support from the programme “International PhD studies in Germany” (IPID) of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
