Ongoing projects

Since its establishment, the Frobenius-Institute was initially specialized in studies on the history and present of various African societies. Other research regions, however, have been added continuously, and the Institute's research profile currently also includes Oceania, Southeast Asia, South and Central Asia. This corresponds with the Institute's standard of being a globally oriented research institution.
