Excerpt from the joint declaration of Bremen's scientific institutions dated 19.01.2024

We stand for democracy, academic freedom, pluralism, and respectful interaction with one another at Bremen's academic institutions.

Our employees and students have a variety of migration histories and it is their commitment that enables us to carry out our tasks in research, teaching, administration, and operations.

Students also represent our future in all areas of society. Our employees and students are indispensable to us, and we want to be an attractive and stable employer for them as well as a vibrant place to study in a liberal-minded region.

We are committed to this together – with this declaration and in our daily interactions and communication with each other.


You can find the complete declaration on the HSB website.
