Contested (Dis)Arrangements - Conflict, Integration and Uncertainty in Modern Societies

In the thematic area "Society" we analyze social sectors, institutions and actors in their developments and structures, their interactions and their effects.

Topics as diverse as the identification and investigation of new social and political challenges, e.g. transnationalization or climate change as well as policy analysis of political areas e.g. social or economic policy but also psychological studies or linguistic projects are discussed here. Research on methods and new developments, such as experimental research in the social sciences with their close connections to behavioral economics and neurosciences, are also covered.

The area "Society" does not offer regular Fellowships, only, but also provides the opportunity to apply for the EURIAS-fellowship-program and to connect with Study Groups on various topics. We cooperate with all academic institutions in the Northwest region; however, excellent applicants without regional ties are most welcome.
