What is NAREM?

NAREM stands for NAtural REsource Management. The project "Political Economy of Natural Resource Management" has a key attention to sustainable development with an interdisciplinary approach which is developed by a group of economists and social scientists in Germany and Iran.

What did we want to achieve?

With our seasonal schools, we aim to amplify sustainable academic relationships in the field of political economy between Iran and Germany. This includes personal relationships between participants that shall help to understand cultural differences. We also implement gender equality in the selection procedure of participants, while taking into account different cultural values and norms. Furthermore, these workshops give us the opportunity to identify different teaching cultures and learn from each other. Additionally, students get the opportunity to improve their knowledge in the topic of political economy of natural resource management, sustainable development and empirical methodologies. Participants of the events will be able to discuss with highly respected academics from different disciplines that will share their expertise related to the topic. The intensity of discussions and exchange during the events will additionally increase the chance of building sustainable networks.

What did we achieve?

Between 2016-2018, we were able to support 132 individuals from different disciplines (e.g., 58% Economics, 17% Political Science, 14% Sociology, 5% Geography) with the funds from DAAD. Among these are 57 female and 43 male students from Germany and Iran, which were mainly Master (70%) and PhD students (21%). From the German side, most students came from the Master programs Economics of the Middle East (EMEA), Politik und Wirtschaft des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens, Economics and Institutions, and International Development Studies (IDS). From the Iranian side, most students came from study programs such as Economics, Energy Economics, and Social and Welfare Planning. Despite the focus on exchange between Germany and Iran, the participants had diverse backgrounds from 15 countries, namely Afghanistan, Algeria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Egypt, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Jordan, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, USA, and Uzbekistan.
