Geschichte der Gegenwart
The Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS) is an independent, international and interdisciplinary research institute. It concentrates on medium-term, socially relevant research on Eastern Europe and and shares the results with policy-makers, the media and the broader public. Researchers from a range of disciplines are represented at ZOiS, including political science, sociology, social anthropology, economic and social geography and political economy, as well as theology and the cultural studies.
A German-language online magazine offering media and expertise relating to Russia, dekoder puts Russian journalism and the scholarly expertise from European universities onto a single website. In 2016, dekoder received the Grimme Online Award for its innovative concept and its editorial work. Having public-benefit status with the purposes of advancing understanding between nations and education, dekoder is a project of Dekoder-gGmbH (Hamburg).
The Research Centre for East European Studies (Forschungsstelle Osteuropa – FSO) is an independent research institute attached to the University of Bremen. It is funded jointly by the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs and the State of Bremen. Founded during the Cold War in 1982, the FSO today combines two goals: the (re)examination of societies and cultures in the “Eastern Bloc” and the analysis of contemporary developments in the post-Soviet region. The Research Centre for East European Studies at the University of Bremen has been involved in the field of knowledge transfer since it was established. Since 2003, a central activity of the Research Centre is the regular online publication of “country analytical digests” (see www.laender-analysen.de).
