The new Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies is a cooperative venture organized by the Ludwig-Maximilians- Universitä t (LMU) in Munich and the University of Regensburg.

Research at the Graduate School especially focuses on interrelations and interdependencies between East and Southeast Europe and other regions of the World. A lively interest in interdisciplinary research questions and sensitivity for transnational and spatial perspectives are therefore expected. In the context of its primary focus on East and Southeast Europe, the
Graduate School draws on the following disciplines: History, Literary and Language Studies, Art History, Theater Studies, Political Sciences and Law. In the context of cross-regional comparisons and transfer studies the School's expertise in Area Studies is complemented by insights from Chinese, Japanese and North American Studies.
In an international working environment the Graduate School offers ideal conditions for the realization of excellent research projects in the Humanities as well as in Social and Legal Studies which focus on East and Southeast Europe, and the interconnection of this region with other regions of the world. Residential obligation in Munich or Regensburg, two cities noted for very high quality of living, is stipulated.
