Chair of Tropical Forestry

The Chair of Tropical Forestry is the first academic institution in Europe, focusing on forestry in the Global South. However, objectives and contexts of the Chair have basically changed. While in the foundation period in 1930 the provision with raw materials via colonial routes was in the center, in 1960 the integration of decolonized peoples in a global socialist world order was the primary objective. Starting from 1990, the focus was on exchange of knowledge between global regions with the inclusion of cultural value systems.
