The integration of European societies faces global challenges as well as socio-demographic changes. Research Department A has focused from the beginning on the development of market economies and welfare states, on social inequalities shaped by education and labour market institutions, and on social integration in ethnically heterogeneous societies.
The main focus of research in Department B is on the development of democracy in Europe. Coherence of the research activities in Department B results from both the common interest in democratic governance in Europe and the methodological focus on theory-guided comparative empirical research in this area.
