The Unit is able to draw on numerous international links in the field but in particular on a close co-operation with members of the Centre for Inter- and Transcultural Studies (CITS) at Cologne University. This centre encompasses nearly 40 experts in the field and it maintains good working relations with the Institute for Postcolonial and Transcultural studies in Bremen University (INPUTS, 30 members) and with the Research Office for Intercultural Studies in Cologne (FiST, 12 members).

In addition, a group of high-profile scholars has agreed to act as International Advisory Board for the further development of the Unit:
