Anna Lassonczyk, international journey

[Translate to Englisch:] Aktuelles Header

Anna Lassonczyk, certified intercultural coach, will take us on a virtual international


On the 20th of April, Intercultural Competence Coach Anna Lassonczyk was invited for the afternoon at FHWS. The project FHWS 3IN coordinated the virtual meeting and 20 participants from different partner universities of the 3IN Alliance were invited to join. Ms. Lassonczyk normally advises big international companies on how to maintain and establish successful international relations, but on Tuesday she coached students of FHWS. The three hours on Tuesday afternoon were filled with a good mixture of facts & figures and useful tips & tricks on how to deal with a typical culture shock or the traditions of cultures all over the world. Participants were enlightened that Germans can be seen as peaches as well as coconuts as it all depends on the perspective: Are Germans hard on the outside and soft on the inside or is it the other way around?

Human-Rights-Week 2020

Header Human rights Week

Julien Cazala (USPN, France), Marja Katisko (DIAK, Finland) and Achim Förster (FHWS, Germany) are all lecturers from universities that are members of the 3IN Alliance. This alliance follows the joint mission to address societal challenges with innovative life-long learning opportunities. The 3IN member universities share a strong commitment to human dignity, social justice and diversity.
The European Union and its member states have long been committed to Human Rights, to protect them for EU citizens and to promote them worldwide. However, violations of those rights still occur or are even fostered due to questionable policies. Therefore, we want to focus on the European Union and its member states to analyse how they protect and promote Human Rights. We want to bring different perspectives from different regions together and have short inputs about the situations on site.

International lecture „Responses to the Crisis – a Transnational View”

[Translate to Englisch:] Header Ringvorlesung

The international lecture „Responses to the Crisis – a Transnational View” took place via ZOOM on 14th and 15th May 2020 and was organized by our project FHWS 3IN, a cooperation of FAS and HSIN.

For the lecture, ten speakers from six of the 3IN Alliances’ partner universities came together and gave a report on how the Corona Crisis affected their home countries. As the speakers came from different European countries, participants, as well as lecturers, were able to exchange information and expertise on an international level and to gain an insight into the crisis management of other European countries. The topics covered a wide field of expertise: from methods of how to make a higher education institute crisis-proof, over general crisis strategies, to the role of religious organizations during a crisis. Thanks to the input of the lecturers as well as the lively discussions afterwards, it became clear that we can still learn from each other, even during isolation and in times of a crisis.
