Carola Richter elected as AGYA Alumni co-speaker
Prof. Dr. Carola Richter, head of the division of International Communication, had been a member of the Arab-German Young Academy of Sciences and Humanities (AGYA) for the past five years and carried out several interdisciplinary projects with her fellow colleagues from Germany and many Arab countries such as a student project on “Comparative Perspectives on Refugee Politics”.
During the first official meeting of the AGYA alumni in the framework of the AGYA Annual Conference in Berlin, on 17 April 2019, and after regular membership ended, Carola Richter was elected co-speaker of the newly developing AGYA alumni network together with Dr. Henda Mahmoudi, Plant Physiologist at the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) in Dubai.
As AGYA alumnae they will continue to benefit from the personal and professional connections forged through intercultural exchange and interdisciplinary research cooperation in the Academy’s expansive scholarly network in the Arab world and Germany. Lifetime membership in AGYA’s Alumni Network ensures that alumni and current members continue to interact and benefit from each other’s energy, ideas and experience, as well as their expertise, academic network and access to research institutions.
