What’s God got to do with it? This was the question posed in the title of a preparatory seminar that Basel- and Ghana-based students took before participating in an excursion that interrogated the heritage and legacies of the Basel Mission (BM) in southern Ghana.

The excursion was the first of two parts, jointly organized by the University of Basel, the Akrofi-Christaller Institute (ACI), and the University of Ghana (UG). It took place on 16–23 January 2024 and included 20 multinational students and 5 instructors. In summer, our Ghanaian colleagues will visit Switzerland and southern Germany for a similar event.
