We consider it necessary for academia to assume socio-political responsibility. In order to fulfil this assignment, the involvement of civil society in our activities is just as important to us as cooperation with other research institutions, also beyond the boundaries of ethnomusicology. Through regular public events we intend to establish and maintain a dialogue with a broader public. Therefore, we aim for cooperation in research networks as well as with NGOs and organizations in the social and cultural sector.
The MMRC has by now established the first cooperations. Some of these organizations have been contributing to the discourses which inspired Ursula Hemetek to found the MMRC for decades.
As the number of our cooperations will constantly increase, these pages will be continuously updated.
