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.
