The Department of Politics and Society is the focal point of research and teaching activities that cover a wide range of political, cultural and social issues, with a particular focus on
comparative, historical and contemporary knowledge of regional, national, European as well as global dynamics and inequalities. All in all, the composition of the scientific staff represents an
exciting diversity, drawing on expert knowledge from both politics, management, digitization and the social economy as well as historical insights and a global outlook. The breadth of the
research and teaching activities within the department form the basis for addressing societal challenges from a temporally and geographically expanded perspective.
