The WZB Distinguished Lectures in Social Sciences

The WZB Distinguished Lectures in Social Sciences aims to showcase the work of leading social scientists whose careers exemplify the same combination of frontier research and policy relevance that the WZB stands for. The series will consist of at least one economist, one sociologist and one political scientist per year, yet the series will place an emphasis on work that is of interdisciplinary interest.
