Fatimah Abbas (Libanon), MHD Adib Gazi (Jordan), Mahmoud Mandou (Jordan), Safa'a Alrefei (Jordan) und Elisa Bugatti (Germany) spent each one month in one of the partner countries, in order to research for their master thesis and to gain deeper understanding on the topic of localisation of Social Work.
"I agree that the concept of "glocal" approaches must be considered when applying localisation of Social Work, which says that global awareness and local solutions must be equally emphasized on." - Fatimah

"The study conditions in Germany, even for the same subject "Social Work", the learning and study experiences are very different compared to Jordan. For me, the teaching methods and tools [...] were much more differentiated than I knew them to be, and the students interacted with the lecturer much more openly than is the case in Jordan." - Adib

"Due of these differences [between Jordan and Germany], the results of my thesis will have a clear impact on the localization of social work in the Arab countries, because it will clarify the differences between GBV [Gender-based violence] practice and interventions with women in Germany and in Jordan." – Mahmoud
