Critical Week / (Kritische Wochen = KriWo)

Once every year the student representatives of the faculty of social science organise the event series “Kritische Wochen” (critical weeks). Traditionally, the KriWo takes place in end of april and the beginning of may. The events including the KriWo are organised from different political or social groups and organisations. The goal of the KriWo is to give new students an idea of socially critical work of different groups and organisations in Bochum.

In 2022 the KriWo took place again in presence (with a hybrid option) from 24.04.-30.04., after it took place digitally in 2021 due to the Corona pandemic.

Further Information concerning the KriWo, the last programm and the groups of the past years are available on the website:
