Diverse research: Fukuhara award for Prof. Dr. Klaus Boehnke
At the annual congress of the International Council of Psychologists (ICP) in Cádiz, Spain, Dr. Klaus Boehnke, Professor of Social Science Methodology at Jacobs University Bremen, was awarded the organization’s Fukuhara Advanced International Research and Service Award. The award recognizes Boehnke’s research as well as his exemplary commitment to international cooperation between psychologists and representatives of neighboring academic disciplines.
The award goes back to Dr. Machiko Fukuhara; she is a former president of the organization and professor emeritus at Tokiwa University in Japan. Founded in 1941, the ICP works worldwide to promote human rights, peace and cooperation between mental health professionals and social scientists.
Boehnke, who was also Vice Dean of the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) for many years until 2017, recently attracted attention with his research on social cohesion commissioned by Bertelsmann Stiftung. For the Robert Bosch Stiftung, recently, he drew up the Diversity Barometer, according to which diversity in Germany is predominantly assessed positively.
