The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien is a research organization that promotes the internationalization of research in the humanities and social sciences.

The Forum provides scope for collaboration among researchers with different regional and disciplinary perspectives and appoints researchers from all over the world as Fellows.

In cooperation with universities and research institutions in Berlin and the rest of Germany, it carries out research projects and initiatives that examine other regions of the world and their relationship to Germany and Europe systematically and with new questions.
