This year's edition of “Leibniz im Bundes­tag” will take place on May 31 and June 1, 2022. PRIF's re­searchers are also involved in the transfer format of the Leibniz Association. For example, MdB Dr Georg Kippels (CDU) will meet with Dr Antonia Witt to discuss Mali and the Sahel as well as coups in West Africa. MdB Anke Domscheit-Berg (DIE LINKE) will hold a virtual con­versation with Prof Dr Jonas Wolff on de-demo­cratization and disputes over democracy worldwide as well as political develop­ments in Latin America. Dr Irene Weipert-Fenner will discuss the impact of the Ukraine war on conflicts in the Arab world with MdB Alexander Radwan (CSU) as well as with the Parlia­mentary Group Maghreb States.

Since 2008, the format “Leibniz im Bundestag” has brought together scientists from various Leibniz institutes with members of the Bundes­tag. In personal discussions, the members of parlia­ment gain insights into the research work and get an oppor­tunity to discuss approaches to solving con­crete problems with the researchers.
