The WZB Berlin Social Science Center investigates fundamental societal issues. Our focus is on education and work, markets and choice, migration, democracy and autocracy, international politics and law. At the WZB researchers from various disciplines work together – mainly from sociology, political science, economics, law and psychology.

Health and Well-being
The WZB Mitteilungen appear in a new look, fresh and redesigned. The current March issue of the WZB Mitteilungen and the Mitteilungen online focus on health and well-being. It is about what keeps people healthy - and what society has to do with it. How does inequality affect health, especially in dealing with the pandemic? How can the relationship between health and social situation be measured? Why is the pandemic also a stress test for societies? How does a good neighborhood affect the well-being of migrants? These and many other questions are explored by our researchers in the current issue.
