Newsletter December 2018

Dear Readers,

It has been several months since the last „Newsletter“ was published. The reason for this nine-months-break was a project journey, which is now finished, and which led me for half a year through countries of Central Asia, East and Southeast Europe. Beside the results of my scientific field research, there are impressive personal experiences, which encourage me to take, within the frame of my abilities, further steps towards international work. In this edition and the two next editions in 2019, I will describe, under the heading “Widening the Horizon”, some aspects of this research project.

The year is coming to an end, and I hope, you can look back on a fulfilled and succeeding year. I remain with best wishes for a blessed Advent and Christmas season and for a lively start into the year 2019
