This study marks one of the first joint activities of the project “Facilitating Global Learning” (FGL). Firstly, it sets out to outline a common ground for all project partners on which to base our future work together in the field of Global Learning (GL). In addition, it analyses crucial requirements for the further development of our project activities. Furthermore, it is intended as a contribution to the general debate on GL. Much thought went into our choice of methods and tools for carrying on our joint cooperation and
research. Throughout the process of compiling this study our actions were guided, on the one hand, by expediency, reflexivity, truthfulness to ourselves and our values and an appreciative attitude towards the other partners’ knowledge and experience in the field of GL and, on the other, by prevailing research methods and standards. We hope that the information and insights set out in the following will lay a solid foundation for the further continuation of the project and beyond.
