OX-BER Project on Family Formation Policies
Description

This project, seed-funded by the OX-BER partnership, explores the potential challenges in linking policies oriented to the pre-parental phase of family with those oriented to the parental phase. Theories on the latter are far more developed than on the former, certainly from a social policy perspective. Moreover, the two phases of life are typically treated in isolation and by distinct research fields. Policies for the preparental phase tend to be considered from a public health perspective whereas the parental phase tends to be the province of classical family policies.

Gemeinsamer Kongress des Zentrums für Zivilgesellschaftsforschung und des Bundesnetzwerks Bürgerschaftliches Engagement
Description

Europa steht vor großen Herausforderungen. Gleichwohl begreifen viele Bürger*innen diese Herausforderungen auch als Chance, um politisch für ein gemeinsames Europa aktiv zu werden. Im Zuge der Wahlen zum Europäischen Parlament im Mai 2019 gewannen zivilgesellschaftliche Initiativen und proeuropäische transnationale politische Bewegungen jenseits der etablierten Parteien an Zuwachs und Aufmerksamkeit. Die Erwartungen von Seiten der
Zivilgesellschaft und der Politik an diese Wahlen waren groß: Die Europawahl sollte ein Schlüsselmoment darstellen und eine positive Weiterentwicklung

Short description
In 1989, roundtable negotiations between undemocratic power holders and the democratic opposition led to a transition from autocratic regimes to liberal democracies in the Visegrád countries: Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Poland. Although the Soviet-type regimes collapsed not because of classical revolutions, the political transitions resulted in revolutionary changes in the constitutional systems.
On the thirtieth anniversary, the questions we are trying to answer at this workshop are the following: To what extent did the coordinated transformation in the region succeed or fail? Could a round table negotiation serve as a strategical device for restoring democracy and constitutionalism again?

The strategic landscape in the Middle East and beyond has significantly changed since the defeat and dismantling of the Islamic State in 2017-2018.

Two developments impact on the threat of jihadi terrorism in Europe and elsewhere: the building of an underground insurgency in Iraqi Sunni territory and the relocation of jihadi fighters, mainly to Afghanistan and Libya.

Lecture by Julian Eckl (University of St. Gallen)
Description

 

In this talk, Julian Eckl will draw on an ethnographic long-term study of sites of global health governance. At these sites, he has met people who presented themselves as experts, has witnessed conflicts over expertise, and was at times referred to as an expert himself. The goal of the talk will be to provide a perspective on global health governance that zooms in on the lived experiences of practitioners.

Discussion with Gesine Schwan and Daniel Ziblatt
Description

The spread of illiberal and autocratic tendencies challenges Europe's democracies. While in some European countries democratic institutions are already eroding, illiberal political parties are on the rise in others. How can we protect Europe's democracies from such dangers? This question is at the core of the closing event of the Berlin Democracy Conference 2019 addressing recommendations for action for political parties, civic education and the media landscape.

Round table
Description

The research field of global health benefits from the plurality of perspectives, both internationally and in the growing global health landscape in Germany. Indeed, calls for interdisciplinarity are omnipresent in global health – a call which often refers to building bridges between the life sciences and the social sciences. This roundtable seeks to foster dialogue across disciplinary cultures and asks: When is interdisciplinarity useful, and when does it fail?

„Ist der Mensch eine Maschine aus Fleisch?“ Mit dieser Frage tritt Joseph Weizenbaum, Computerpionier und Kritiker des technologischen Größenwahns, im Film „Plug & Pray“ zu seinem letzten Duell mit Raymond Kurzweil und Hiroshi Ishiguro an, den Schöpfern von Robotern, die uns ersetzen sollen. Eine faszinierende Reise zu den Laboratorien der künstlichen Intelligenz in USA, Japan, Deutschland und Italien beginnt. Aber nicht nur im Film soll gezeigt werden, was noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten als Science-Fiction galt und jetzt längst zur Realität geworden ist.

Wissen, das in der modernen Gesellschaft zunehmend als "Ressource" verstanden wird, bedarf immer schon, und mit Zunahme institutioneller Komplexitäten immer mehr, der rechtlichen Flankierung, Absicherung und Regelung.

Book Discussion
Short description
Are social practices actions or institutional frameworks of interaction structured by common rules? How do social practices such as signing a cheque differ from international practices such as signing a peace treaty? Traversing the fields of international relations (IR) and philosophy, this book defends an institutionalist conception of practices as part of a general practice theory indebted to Oakeshott, Wittgenstein and Hegel. The proposed practice theory has two core aspects: practice internalism and normative descriptivism. In developing a philosophical analysis of social practices that has a special relevance for international relations, Silviya Lechner and Mervyn Frost depart from Pierre Bourdieu’s sociology of practice that dominates the current ‘practice turn' in IR. The authors show that the contemporary global realm is constituted by two distinct macro practices - the practice of sovereign states and that of global rights.

The tremendous growth of digital transactions –mainly through online platforms— has profoundly affected the way we interact, opening vast opportunities to improve our lives. Consumers have benefited from an unprecedented proliferation of new services and products that previously were simply too costly to be developed and marketed to customers. At the same time, network effects in platform business models have brought market power concerns back to the front stage.

Europe seems to be out of joint. Wherever you look, European integration is been questioned in fundamental ways; fears over migration and rising inequality are dominating public debate and fuelling the rise of populist parties. Positive stories are needed to reassert the game-changing power of European unity and to bring about change. This is where the combined contribution of science and culture comes into play.

Presentation by Alexander-Kenneth Nagel (University of Göttingen)
Description

European debates about the reception and accommodation of refugees have since the very beginning of the so called “refugee crisis” in 2015 circled around religious issues: Some (of the most secularized) postsocialist countries rediscovered their Christian cultural heritage as an argument against the immigration of Muslims, and in Germany reports on interreligious conflicts nurtured claims for a separation of refugees along religious lines. The talk draws on an extensive case study on religious diversity and practice in refugee accommodation centers in Lower Saxony.

Weizenbaum Fellow Talk with Dr. Mareile Kaufmann
Description

With the rise of Internet behemoths and the surveillance of increasingly personal domains there is a trend of questioning life online. This talk draws attention to hacking practices that interrogate the diverse faces of online veillance. I will first introduce current debates about hackers as interrogators of surveillance. Instead of portraying hacking as a simple counterculture I seek to complicate dichotomies of power vs. resistance, online vs. offline, and technological system vs. social practice.

Governments attempt to evade this legal obligation to which they have explicitly agreed by manipulating territoriality. A remote control strategy of “extra-territorialization” pushes border control functions hundreds or even thousands of kilometers beyond the state’s territory.

Weizenbaum Fellow Talk by Vincent August
Description

Why is it that we describe our societies in terms of networks? Academic and popular literature usually suggests that computers and the internet produced the network society. However, there is another story to be told. Vincent August reveals how social and political thought deliberately enforced cybernetic network ideas to re-shape the way we think about society and politics.

Soziale Ungleichheit ist Gegenstand aktueller öffentlicher Debatten: Bleiben Ungleichheiten trotz einer boomenden Wirtschaft bestehen oder nehmen sie sogar zu? Wie werden Ungleichheiten über Generationen hinweg reproduziert? Warum werden Ungleichheiten gruppenspezifisch unterschiedlich wahrgenommen? Welche individuellen und gesellschaftlichen Folgen von Ungleichheit gibt es, insbesondere in Bezug auf politische Teilhabe?

Weizenbaum meets Colin Bennett
Description

It is now widely supposed in many democracies that the modern political campaign needs to be “data driven” to consolidate existing support and to find potential new voters and donors.  The capture of data on political opinions and affiliation permits the construction of profiles on individual voters and the “micro-targeting” of increasingly precise messages to increasingly refined segments of the electorate.  To what extent should modern campaigns be allowed to “know” the electorate?  The answer to this question relies to some extent on privacy and data protection rules, based on principles

Seminar by Lyndall Strazdins
Description

The hour-glass ceiling refers to a ceiling on pay and advancement which arises when good jobs become predicated on long hours. This ceiling is time- not merit-based; it pushes otherwise qualified and capable women out of well-paid and influential jobs into short hour and less privileged jobs, compromising their income and earnings, creating a two-tiered, gender-polarised labour market that undermines equality. This seminar discusses recent research on how time and health are related.

No time in its history has it looked so economically fragile, so unsecure about how to protect its borders, so divided over how to tackle the crisis of legitimacy facing its institutions, and so under assault of Eurosceptic parties. The unprecedented levels of integration in recent decades has led to increased public contestation, yet at the same the EU is more reliant on public support for its continued legitimacy than ever before.

Die liberale Demokratie ist in Bedrängnis. Jenseits sozialer und ökonomischer Konflikte reichen neue Auseinandersetzungen tief in die Identität und Kultur der westlichen Gesellschaften hinein. Konflikte über Grenzen, Migration, Menschenrechte und den Umgang mit Minderheiten führen zu einer stärkeren Politisierung und Mobilisierung. Viele Menschen engagieren sich und wollen die Welt verändern. Gleichzeitig sind die Eliten in die Kritik geraten. Eine zunehmende Sprachlosigkeit zwischen den verschiedenen gesellschaftlichen Gruppen erschwert die Suche nach Lösungen.

Migration is one of the defining challenges of the 21st century. Many countries in Europe and North America have experienced a stark increase in the size and diversity of their immigrant and refugee populations. Reeling and reactive, governments are struggling to facilitate their successful integration. Much is at stake in this process. With the right approach, governments can set up immigrants for success and thereby strengthen the economy and enrich civil society.

Description

When do voters form accurate perceptions of party positions, and when do they feel certain about their perceptions? We believe that information availability plays a crucial role, and argue that election campaigns, by increasing information availability, enhance voter accuracy and certainty. Yet, we also argue that campaigns are less effective for voters’ perceptions about governing parties’ positions. In addition, we argue that changing party positions reduce voter certainty.

Democracy is a system of peaceful conflict resolution. It places an absolute ban on the exercise, tolerance, and encouragement of political violence. Existing democracies, however, are not immune to violent action but suffer from multiple forms of political violence. Antidemocratic actors who openly justify and exercise violence are one part of the problem. Those who are suspicious of acting as their masterminds, accomplices, or sympathizers are the other part.

Using a new measure of “comprehensive democracy,” our analysis traces the global democratic trend over the last 116 years, from 1900 until 2016, looking in particular at the centennial trend’s cultural zoning. As it turns out, democracy has been proceeding and continues to differentiate the world’s nations in a strongly culture-bound manner: high levels of democracy remain a distinctive feature of nations in which emancipative values have grown strong over the generations.

And yet, a more relational approach that takes seriously the role of the human and social appearance of robots could help us to understand why people may construct the robot’s political status in more “thick” terms in the near future.

While in most Western democracies women support left-leaning and progressive parties at higher rate than men, five decades ago the opposite was the case. To explain the realignment along gender lines on the left, we analyze it jointly with the rise of the radical right – two phenomena usually studied separately. Unlike most studies of the gender gap, we focus on men’s vote.

A common project by Hanno Hilbig, Daniel Ziblatt and Daniel Bischof
Description
 
While an enormous body of research investigates what drives radical right voting, we know comparatively little about the cultural roots of this phenomenon. We add to this research agenda by investigating how “cultural remoteness” of regions affects voting for the radical right in Germany. We argue that voters who live in districts which are culturally more distinct and exclusive are more likely to vote for radical right parties. Cultural remoteness strengthens feelings of local identity and the need to isolate oneself from global developments.
