Within the framework of the founding process of the ZRKG, the management, members and interested parties have developed a Mission Statement that forms the basis of the joint work and various activities. The Mission Statement provides information on the relevance of the research questions approached by the ZRKG. It also explains the terms used in the center’s title, their different connotations in an interdisciplinary context as well as the unifying perspective of the researchers. In addition, the Mission Statement defines the structuring into three fields of research and the main objectives of the ZRKG.
