In the new project Regional Cooperation and the Transformation of National Sovereignty in the Global South, Professor Fredrik Söderbaum and Dr Kilian Spandler seek to understand these divergences by comparing the transboundary management of rivers and communicable diseases in Africa and Southeast Asia.
