This meeting will be devoted to a discussion of the potentials of and possible perspectives on mission, a theme relevant to both RF 4 and RF 2. Discussion will be based on two readings and short input statements by members of RF 4 who deal with mission in their projects (Anne-Charlott Trepp, Hans Martin Krämer, Marion Eggert/Andreas Müller-Lee).
