Would you like to know more about our Political Education Department?

What do we do?

The task of the Political Education Department is to catch the student’s attention about current political dynamics and events, to facilitate the development of a political sense of responsibility and the willingness for active tolerance in our society.

In the past, the Political Education Department organized:

  • Seminars
  • Info Events
  • Trips (for example to the Landtag Düsseldorf)
  • Charity concerts
  • Election events
  • Debate nights
  • Quizzes

We want all students to be able to create their own view on the world, and whether it is a university-wide, regional, national, or international matter, we want to keep you informed and create the opportunity to exchange ideas on these topics. In the daily overflow of information, we often forget that many laws and political decisions affect our life, directly or indirectly. Therefore, we believe that it is important to be aware of the political discourses, in order to better understand the world we live in.

If you believe we miss out on certain topics, we are always happy to hear about suggestions  or students who join us as volunteers to implement their ideas into our work, so please do not hesitate to contact us.


Anastasia Thalassinos

I am Anastasia and I am 22 years old. I am in the 5th semester of the study program “Arbeits- und Organisationspsychologie” at our University. I moved to Kamp-Lintfort at the beginning of my studies in October 2018. Soon after that I realized how important it is to help shape our community and how great the student life can be when we work together. That’s when I joined the AStA team as a volunteer for the political education department in Kamp-Lintfort. Through that, I have met amazing people and we were able to realize many ideas, events and trips together


Tim Schirmer

I’m Tim Schirmer and i’m 22 years old. I was born and raised in Berlin, Germany, and moved to Kleve to study International Relations at HSRW. I’m currently in my third semester and besides studying, I like to be active at the university and locally. What I like about Kleve is the welcoming and motivating community of people from all over the world. I enjoy having inspiring conversations with friends, or people I have never met before, reading newspapers, and going hiking in Austria. Also, everything’s better with a good cup of coffee in your hand.
